The largest city in Miller County, AR, Texarkana is prone to tornadoes due to its flat landscape and dry weather. There have been 114 tornadoes in the area since 1950 and Texarkana was even the site of an EF4 tornado in 1971. Torshel proudly makes its shelters available in the area. We can install either safe rooms or underground shelters within a reasonable amount of time. Safety is Torshel’s number one concern, which is why we are proud to work with the Oklahoma Credit Union to help extend loans to Arkansas residents that wish to install a shelter in their homes.
We can also work with construction companies who are interested in installing underground shelters or safe rooms into homes that are under construction or after they are finished. Being close to Texas, some homes in this area may have basements or traditional storm cellars, but these do not offer the same amount of protection as a shelter. Torshel’s underground shelters and safe rooms meet or exceed FEMA’s strict standards and are designed to withstand even EF5 tornadoes. Our work is also backed by our 10 year warranty.
