Hattiesburg has seen its share of tornadoes, with the last major tornado hitting in February 2013. The EF4 tornado caused 82 injuries. In the past, even the University of Southern Mississippi has seen damages due to South Mississippi’s weather. Torshel is here to ensure those in the Southern Mississippi area are protected from the state’s frequent storms. We carry underground shelters and above ground safe rooms as well as community shelters that can be used by churches, schools, and major organizations.
In addition, our capable staff can install an in-ground (underground) shelter within a day unless rocky soil conditions or weather cause delays. This may cause the installation to last two days. We can install safe rooms within 2-3 hours. At Torshel we stand by our work with a 10-year warranty.
