FEMA room unveiled

FEMA SHELTER IN LAKE MILLS

LAKE MILLS, Iowa – A local school district is now ready for anything.

Those at the Lake Mills School District are happy to show off their new FEMA tornado safe room attached to the high school.

Right now, it’s being used for wrestling practice, but it can quickly change over into a shelter if needed.

Superintendent Daryl Sherman says that’s a good feeling.

“What I would like to see in this open house is that the community has a chance to see where their kids would be protected from severe weather or a tornado activity,” said Sherman.

The cost to build the room was just over one million dollars with it being able to hold more than 900 people.
