Temporary Shelters

Storm Shelter

Back to Other SheltersStorm shelters are prefabricated tanks made of steel, reinforced concrete or fiberglass which may be installed in the ground, or under a slab or foundation before a new home is built. They provide a space where people can survive a natural disaster such as a tornado or hurricane with little or no injury.

Shelters can also be used as a safe place in case of an intruder or a fireproof place to store valuable items. Click the following to read more about temporary shelters.

In the Artic, Eskimos build dome-shaped houses called igloos to shelter them against the fierce winds and snow of winter.

Although an igloo can provide adequate protection for weeks in severe cold, it is used almost exclusively as a temporary shelter while traveling and hunting for seals and polar bears.

An igloo can be built in a few hours using blocks of snow and ice. Back to MainWigwamWigwams are Native American homes that were designed so that they could be moved easily. Wigwam is dome shaped and is made of thin branches or poles covered with bark or animal hides.

What has an underground tunnel entrance that faces away from the wind to keep out cold air and reduce heat loss when the door is open?TepeeCaravanIglooHutTree ShelterThe tree shelters or wattowadli were most often used in winter as the aboriginal family groups moved inland to escape the cold winds near the coast.

The shelter would have been made more comfortable by blocking off openings exposed to the weather and lining the dirt floor with bark and animal skin rugs. A verandah, made of leaves, bark and branches, probably extended the size of the shelter.
