    People living in trailers for the most part, probably don't have thousands of dollars to drop because other people decided they had to have one. And I doubt you'd convince the general public to build shelters. Who is going to pay for these shelters?

    I agree at the individual level but the park owner could invest in them. Landlords/property owners do have many obligations to safety.

    And many communities also do pay for and build shelters but people have to have enough notice...and mobility...to get to them.

    I do not think individuals should be required to have them. I could support a law that required a trailer park with over a certain number of units not on block foundations or some number of residents to have a shelter even if it is just the basement of the office. When a tornado is coming, you do not always have time to get in your car and drive somewhere. Tornadoes form and disappear fast in our area anyway, so you might only have a couple minutes warning at best when one forms.
