Kansas Installs Storm Shelters Along Turnpike
There are 30 tornado shelters all along the Kansas Turnpike.
“We have tornado shelters at all of the plazas, and they`re mainly for our employees and any customers that would be in the general area,” said Kansas Highway Patrol Master Trooper Karl Koenig. “Simply open them up by a door, there`s steps to go down in there, and there`s a small wind turbine on top that provides air when the doors shut.”
Each shelter along the 236 mile stretch of highway can hold about 15 people, but there are a few larger ones underneath certain toll booths, according to FoxKC4.com
