It's an old idea. The Morrison Shelter was used during the WWII London Blitz to serve much the same function. http://ww2today.com/27th-march-1941-...-is-introduced

Hmm. Get marketing in on this. Needs a catchy name.. Temblor tomb? The pre-coffinator? Corpse cache?

Isn't American marketing amazing? Remember all those expensive fallout shelters? I have to believe kevlar vests would be a better marketing ploy!

I would rather have the one with the high lid on it have a wall come down instead of it making a small 'coffin'.... that way I actually have a ROOM to live in for a bit of time....

OK. Those beds sort of freaked me out. I would need something a bit larger. I think I'll stay in Fl. where I have some warning of the hurricanes coming.

Cheers!

Well, I guess it's better than being crushed. Still, like Texas Proud I'd rather have one with some room in it.
