Torshel has installed in ground storm shelters and safe rooms across the state of Alabama, including the areas of Mobile, Tuscaloosa, Birmingham-Hoover, Huntsville, Auburn, Montgomery, and other surrounding areas. The areas of Tuscaloosa and Birmingham were greatly affected by the tornado outbreak of 2011. In 2015, 32 tornadoes were identified in the state of Alabama.
Alabama is also a part of the Dixie Alley. This is the part of the Deep South that has a high propensity for tornados due to its flatness, and the way it is affected by weather patterns from the Gulf of Mexico. Mobile homes are also common type of housing structure in the state, and this causes more destruction because these homes have less stable foundations than a traditional home.
Tornadoes in the South also tend to happen at night; they get faster and wider than those in the Plains states (Tornado Alley), and can are less visible due to the many trees in the region. In addition, the Gulf Coast is also vulnerable to hurricanes that affect the Gulf Coast, which means homeowners in this area must also take additional weather patterns into consideration when deciding on the type of shelter they want.
In the past, FEMA has made rebate programs available to people in areas affected by strong tornadoes. Customers are encouraged to check with their local and state Emergency Management Agency to see about rebates or other financing options that allow Alabama residents to more easily purchase a shelter. Torshel staff is also consistently researching financing opportunities specific to the state of Alabama to help make the process easier for our clients. According to data, in 2013 there was an average of 44 tornadoes in Alabama.
