When people realized that our local supermarket had no protected space inside, the authorities trucked in a portable shelter.
It is a sad commentary on the situation in my town and in the south that we need such a migunit that can withstand enemy rocket fire.
There is a ring of small shops in our town's little commercial center
Next time the Red Alert siren blares I reckon a lot of people will be running (we have 90 seconds here) to take shelter in the small concrete box.
It is going to be really crowded standing in there for the mandatory ten minutes after the explosion.
I think I'll just continue staying home, with the luxury of a real bomb shelter right in my apartment.
Didn't want to buy food anyway . . . .
