From gyms to shelters

Daily Mail on Sunday:

'Hurricane domes' rising across Texas as shelters -- and they double as gyms

Most of the time, the windowless building with the dome-shaped roof will be a high school gym filled with cheering fans watching sports games. But in hurricane season, the structure will double as a shelter.

Coastal Texas cities far enough inland to avoid the storm surge would probably be protected in such structures.  About 40 to 50 miles would probably be enough.  Texas has been pretty organized when it comes to storm responses.
