    Should trailer parks / trailer owners be required to have a storm shelter

    Would you support a law in your state if it gets frequent tornadoes for this. Obviously states in tornado alley are the ones with tornadoes mostly.

    Everyone knows that trailers attract tornados anyway. Perhaps a community storm shelter but not an individual one as trailers are by nature mobile.

    I think they should be able to park their trailers anywhere that they own one full acre and give the World the numero uno single digit salute.

    Let parks do it on their own and charge extra for it as they would have to. Let people decide for themselves if the extra rent is worth it.

    A lot of people in trailers don't have an acre of land.

    Trailer parks are like tornado magnets...

    Requiring trailer parks in tornado zones to have them wouldn't be the worst thing. I don't think it makes sense to require individual trailer owners to have them because as others have said, they are mobile.

    You could consider something similar here...cheap river front land that floods frequently...but plenty of trailer parks are set up on that land.

    Should every person renting or living there have to pay for flood insurance? Or...because of the crazy risk...be denied such insurance?
