Homes By Vanderbuilt

Continuing with the theme of this website of providing home buyers with relevant information regarding modular homes versus natural elements, Homes By Vanderbuilt brings you another story about how these modular homes withstood 160 MPH tornado winds.

A tornado struck Western Massachusetts with 160 MPH winds on June 1, 2011. Two modular homes that were directly in the tornado’s path fared much better than any of the surrounding stick built homes. This video shows the destructive path of the tornado and what it did to each of the homes in it’s path.

The second contains interviews with both families about how they and their modular homes survived the twister’s ravaging winds while most of the other homes in the neighborhood were completely destroyed.
