LEESBURG, GA (WALB) - With so many tornado and thunderstorm warnings issued for parts of south Georgia, some people are looking for ways to stay safe.

Billy Geck installs these fiberglass units underground, so far he has about fifty orders.

"We're in tornado season, and these units are under ground and this is where your safety is being under ground, a lot of people that live in mobile homes and are not aware of a Category 3 tornado it can take your whole home away," Billy Geck, Lifesaver Storm Shelters.

Geck says shelters like these can also be installed in the foundation of homes before they're built.

The price tag is around four thousand dollars.
