Demand for storm shelters increases

INDIANAPOLIS -- Phones are ringing off the hook at an Indiana storm shelter builder just days after Monday's tornado.

Clover Homes sold 10 shelters last year but now their office says it has seen a huge increase in calls after the disaster in Moore, Oklahoma.

Crews dig a five-and-a-half foot hole and bury the shelter.

Some believe basements are great but others feel storm shelters are a better solution.

"They are safer than a basement because nothing can hurt you in here.  In the basement, stuff can fall on you," said Floyd Freeman. "The insurance I have it here. It's a wonderful feeling. I'll tell you."

The shelters cost about $6,000.
