Below Ground Corrugated Steel Culvert Shelter Model
A four foot diameter by eight foot long steel corrugated culvert pipe to shelter three persons? Yikes! This shelter is even smaller than the plywood box shelter.
There's not even any room to put a chemical toilet or food if you put three people in this thing. It should have at least
another length of pipe added but still, I think, it would be pretty miserable to occupy this for any length of time. I have
seen shelters similar to this advertised online. It would make a decent tornado shelter though.
