FORNEY, Texas – At the height of the Cold War, bomb shelters were a common part of American life.

Civil Defense films from the 1950s taught children to “duck and cover” and find a public fallout shelter if nuclear bombs were dropped by the Russians.

More than 60 years later, underground shelters are making a comeback of sorts, but these high-tech shelters aren’t anything like what your parents and grandparents grew up with. Some are like underground cities complete with fresh food, recreation, and entertainment.
