CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS)- Michael Cobb is a physics professor at Southeast Missouri State University and said a monolithic dome might be the answer to surviving severe tornadoes.
He said a monolithic dome is a steel reinforced thin concrete shell structure.
Cobb said FEMA has certified the dome structure as nearly indestructible. He said it can withstand winds up to 350 miles an hour, and hold off 2x4 boards traveling at 100 miles per hour. But, as long as the structures have windows and doors they’re not completely tornado proof. He said those are the weak points when it comes to a tornado.
