(KFSM) — When severe weather is coming, it’s a good idea to develop a severe weather plan ahead of time.

Here are a list of storm shelters that are open to the public. This is a developing list, so please let us know if we are missing a storm shelter.

Many shelters do not allow pets. In areas without a nearby shelter, emergency management officials ask people to develop a shelter plan at home or with friends or family instead of driving in the storm.

Anyone with a personal storm shelter is encouraged to register the shelter with their local emergency management department.
