It’s official: The Samantha community has its own storm shelter.

It’s part of the community’s Northside Park, and Tuscaloosa County District 1 Commissioner Stan Acker hosted the shelter’s grand opening today along with the Tuscaloosa County Parks and Recreation Authority.

“I’m very grateful to have been a part of development of this park and tornado shelter. Just a few years ago, the property was an eyesore of scrub trees and bare dirt between Walker Elementary and Northside Middle Schools,” said Acker.

The storm shelter can hold as many as 50 people, and will be open during any impending tornado warnings.
