For tornado i would not build any above ground shelter as mom nature can be quite aggressive.
If you are serious about shelter you can do a smal 6x6x6 sub terrain shelter that will be much better than anything above ground.
It does not have to be huge and it's not like your gonna live in it, just dig and reinforce the walls and put about a foot of earth above you.
This will keep you below the windshear.
That's what i'd do if i needed a budget quick shelter anyway, plus some say just jump in a ditch, if that helps to keep you from getting blown away,
i'm sure my 6x6x6 box would do just fine.
Hope it helps, any objections, comments? any would be appreciated.
