The threat of global annihilation may feel as present as it did during the Cold War, but today’s high-security shelters could not be more different from their 20th-century counterparts.

It is not a new business by any stretch, but demand for underground bunkers is at an all-time high according to Clyde Scott, owner of Rising Bunkers, based in Texas.
