Arcadia, Oklahoma is a small town located off the I-35 Northbound near Edmond. Although it is a separate community, it is often referred to as being part of Edmond.
Arcadia is home to two of Oklahoma’s top tourist attractions: Pops and the Round Barn. Both of these attractions are located in the heart of the town, just minutes from the stunning, man-made Arcadia lake. The old Route 66 runs right through the town, and remnants of days past are evident everywhere in faded murals and historical signs.
Like Norman, Arcadia is actually a very high tornado risk area with an average of 4 tornadoes touching down in the area per year. Since 1950, nearly 270 confirmed tornadoes have touched down in the 4 mile radius around the town.
In addition to the near constant threat of tornadoes, there has been an increase of earthquake activity in the area in the last few years. So far, there have been no confirmed deaths in the area due to earthquakes, but the National Geological Institute predicts a striking increase in the number and severity of earthquakes in the area over the next ten years.
Because of the threat of natural disaster, but from the sky and the ground, it is highly recommended that every home and building in this area have a storm shelter. During the event of an earthquake or tornado, the reinforced concrete walls and 300 lb vault doors will deflect debris from injuring those inside.
Our pre-fabricated storm rooms can hold anywhere from 1 to 8 people easily, and custom installations can actually hold many, many more. Large scale community shelters are custom designs meant to hold more than 20 people at a time.
Don’t gamble with your safety in such a high risk area. Call us and let us make sure that you have all the protection you need.
