Oh, I agree 100% that it is a lot safer than being upstairs. But it's a relative thing -- if the house takes a direct hit, you're still unlikely to escape unscathed.
This entire tornado/natural disaster has been about relative safety. There's a chance that your home could get hit by an asteroid, and even your tornado-proof shelter would do little to save you from that XD
