Trailer Parks and debris

November 08 12:19 AM

National, state and local government have all sorts of laws to help protect citizens in their day-to-day life. An example of what I am talking about is how wiring is standardized in your home or if it's legal to keep a lion in your house for a pet. What I never have understood is how this train of thought has never been carried over to people who live in trailer parks. The recent tornado to hit Indiana has brought this back into my mind. I always thought there should be some sort of government regulation for people who own and run trailer parks that makes them have a storm shelter that will fit and protect everyone who lives in the trailer park. One central place to go to so they dont have to ride it out in there trailer or try to flee to some place safe. It couldnt be all that expensive and if you want to help subsidize the cost then build a laundromat on top of it for use by the tenets. Just seems like a no brainer to me - I dont understand why it's not done.

And also along those same lines - when does the stuff you own officially turn into "debris" when flung around by nature's fury? The news always posts captions like "debris scattered about a field", but what if that stuff just flew off someone's porch a few feet away? Is that still debris or just a localized mess?
