"Our" Wind Test

Real EF5 Proven

If ​you look closely, you'll see the slab of the house where our shelter was located. Vilonia was hit hard just three years​ before this tornado. Our underground tornado shelters are proven lifesavers.

In April 2014, a devastating tornado ripped through the town of Vilonia, Arkansas. Fourteen people were in one of our shelters. All survived fine. Unfortunately, sixteen people died in this town.

Cozy Caverns Storm Shelters
Why steel? Its strength, durability, and versatility made it the best choice.

Steel is an extremely durable material that can withstand seasonal shifts in the earth. You may have experienced the bounce while stuck in traffic on a bridge. Unlike concrete or fiberglass, steel won't crack underground.

 It also provides a Faraday effect, making it safer during lightning and able to protect electronic equipment from EMP transmissions. Our shelters are not only used as storm shelters but can serve various other purposes as well. Bunkers, food storage, Wildfire protection, bomb shelter, and gun safes.

"Excellence, affordability, and trust - our brand delivers it all. Choose Quality, Value, Reputation."

Cozy Caverns has become what it is today because of its commitment to quality and craftsmanship. Our customers come from over 21 states, ranging from Florida to Washington, which is a testament to the quality of our products.

 Each unit is handcrafted with pride, and we don't rely on conveyor belts or robot welding machines in our shops. Our company is based in Lonoke County, Arkansas, and has been operating since 1999. We are the oldest underground steel storm shelter company in Arkansas.

The best in Customer Service

We strongly believe that exceptional customer service is just as important as the quality of our product. We don't employ pushy salespeople. 

Instead, you will speak directly with the owners, who will treat you with the utmost respect and answer any questions you may have from start to finish. Furthermore, your storm shelter will be custom-built to meet your specific needs.

Recent Tornado Trends




According to the National Centers for Environmental Information, 547 tornadoes were documented from January through April 2024. This number, higher than the average of 338 tornadoes observed between 1991 and 2020 for the same period, signifies a significant increase in tornado activity. It is also consistent with the numbers seen in 2022 and 2023, indicating a sustained trend.

While the overall number of tornadoes has remained relatively steady in recent years, there have been significant changes in their behavior. More tornadoes are occurring on fewer days, with a higher number happening on the same day. This shift in behavior, coupled with a growing concentration of tornadoes in the southeastern part of the US and the historically common Great Plains region, underscores the urgent need for updated emergency management strategies and policies. It is our collective responsibility to adapt to these changing patterns.

Researchers have identified that the increased clustering of tornadoes is linked to specific atmospheric and wind conditions that can simultaneously fuel multiple tornadoes. Changes in the geography of tornado occurrences are related to shifts in precipitation patterns, with some areas drying out and others experiencing increased rainfall.

The trend of tornado clustering, observed since the 1980s and continues today, is a pressing issue that requires immediate attention. The study found that while only 11% of tornadoes occurred on days with 20 or more tornadoes from 1950 to 1970, that number has risen to 29% recently. This increase in tornado clustering is attributed to the prevalence of specific weather conditions, such as high levels of atmospheric instability and wind shear, that provide the necessary fuel for these clusters, further emphasizing the urgency of the situation.

There is still uncertainty about the connection between these shifts in tornado behavior and climate change. Researchers are striving to understand whether natural variations, broader climate change, or a combination of both influence these changes. The importance of this understanding cannot be overstated, as it will guide our future strategies and policies. More research is needed to unravel the reasons behind these developments.
