MIDWEST CITY, Okla. – It was a great day for the Barrientez family, residents of Midwest City. Thunderground Storm Shelters was busy installing their big, new tornado shelter.

“I am so excited about this. I’m a bit nervous but more excited,” said Kizzy Barrientez.

The Barrientez family won the tornado shelter back in February during KFOR NewChannel 4’s Tornado Shelter Giveaway contest.

Thunderground Storm Shelters and NewsChannel 4 gave away 20 storm shelters throughout that month.

The timing of the shelter installation is perfect as we could experience some severe weather this coming Sunday.
