Where we are, most of the houses have basements - not because of tornados, but because the frost line is about 48 inches in the winter. We could not afford to heat the house without a basement.

During tornado season, we just go downstairs and go towards the wall that is closest to the direction the tornado is coming from. In our case, that is usually the SW corner. Our food and medical preps are down there too. The medical is all in watertight plastic bins up on the top of a shelf (because it is light). The food is mostly in #10 cans or 5 gallon buckets with gamma lids. I did put some 2x4's down on the floor and we set the buckets and cans on them to keep it away from any seepage. But we really do not have a problem with flooding unless I fail to keep the sump clear.
