The city of Ralls opens a shelter strong enough to withstand the winds of an F-5 tornado. The idea for the shelter came back in 2005 when a tornado came dangerously close to the city. Residents worried if this happened again they would lose everything necessary to keep their town running. A grant from FEMA helped them construct this $580,000 facility. "It not only protects our citizens from actual storms, but it can act as a community center year round and its deeply needed for both," says City Administrator Rhett Parker. The building took three years to build and their next step is to add furniture and electronics to the facility.
