New shelter option for riding out storms

Posted: Updated:
WESTON (WKOW) -- When severe weather hits in Wisconsin, most of us head to the basement.

But what about people who don't have that option?

A company near Wausau has a new product called Safe and Storm rooms.
They're above the ground structures, made of heavy duty steel.
The rooms have to be bolted down and can be assembled in a matter of hours.
Leaders at AD Custom Products say the shelter was a perfect next step for the company.

General Manager Joe Yelle says, "We've been in the business of safety for over 25 years building operator protective structures that go on machines in the mining and utility industry keeping people safe so this was a natural gravitation to include this."

The company says the rooms can easily sustain debris colliding into it at speeds of more than 200 miles per hour.
