  Food and Pepsi in the downstairs room
by OlenaKyiv

Once I came to one of the houses, and when owners showed me it, I noticed in the room downstairs PEPSI, peanut butter, creckers. My first thought was that owner forgot about it, so being polite I just kept being quiet. Then in awhile, I have got to know that it is sanctuary in case the hurricane occures.

Because the state of Tennessee is a center of hurricanes which may bring a lot of destructions, many houses in Tennessee have a room like this where people can hide themself in case the hurricane will be. This room has a storage of food, water, creckers. Probably I would put blanckets either. It was so cold in that room!
