Weather Stop Give Away Twister Safe Winner

Elaine Lloyd was the winner of a four thousand dollar twister safe.
JOPLIN, MO--- A family in Joplin can now feel safer when storms approach. Elaine Lloyd was the lucky winner of a $4,000 twister safe given away at the July 2nd grand prize drawing. Crews took around 45 minutes to install the safe room in Lloyd's home Monday afternoon, in Lloyd's detached garage. Installers also added a ramp to the room due to Lloyd's vision impairment.

Although she was not directly affected by the 2011 tornado, Lloyd says she entered the drawing so her family could feel safer when storms approach.

"I have a daughter and a grandson to consider and I went and tried to enter to win a Twister Safe. If I couldn't get it that way, I was going to save financially for one.", says Lloyd.

Jeremy Davis, Owner of Twister Safe, says "A good feeling in your heart to know that if we do have bad weather tonight, she has a place to go. A place that she didn't have yesterday or even this morning for that matter. It's kind of one of those things that we enjoy."

Our station, with the help of Twister Safe owners, have given away several safe rooms over the past few years. Stay tuned to KODE for your next chance to win a twister safe.
