With severe weather season in full swing, its important to take precautions before its too late. One local company is selling storm rooms to do just that.
The structures can withstand 250 mph winds and come equipped with a document locker, spare set of tools and lights inside. They take a few hours to put together, but a co-owner of the business says it is saving lives and creating jobs.
"Two years ago when the economy was good starting to come out of the economic lull that we've had, we had 19 people working here," Joe Yelle, co-owner of ADC Custom Products said, "good paying jobs, we hire some good people, now its 33 and we're growing."
Not only are they creating jobs, but much of the structure is made by local materials.
