    Safe Room

>> they'd get flooded from the rain! duh.

That would be a problem, all right.

Consider building some sort of above-ground "safe room".

Food for thought: here's a picture of the credit union property in Moore, Oklahoma after the tornado in 2013. A number of people survived by huddling in the vault, which was all that remained of the building:

More food for thought: a book about safe rooms from FEMA, in hard copy or downloadable files:

EDIT: fixed town name.
