Discovery Channel Canada recently spent a day at the Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) to film a segment on Bob Falk’s tornado safe room research. Falk, a research general engineer at FPL, is developing plans for a do-it-yourself tornado safe room made from commodity lumber. His research, which involves shooting 2×4 lumber from an air cannon at 100 mph, was featured on the show Daily Planet and the results are a blast.
