42 buses = one nuclear fall-out shelter

Bruce Beach, a resident of Horning’s Mill, a town north of Toronto in Canada has built a nuclear fall-out shelter for his local community using old school buses https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-us-canada-44961491/bruce-beach-has-built-a-10000-sq-ft-nuclear-bunker.

Bruce, a radiological scientific officer, placed the very first bus in the ground back in 1980 and, over the years, has used a further 41 buses to create the 10,000 sq ft shelter and its 50 different rooms, including a sleeping area with 48 bunk beds and a special decontamination area. He’s aptly named the shelter ‘Ark Two’.

‘Ark Two’ has its own 50,000 gallon water supply and could provide protection for people for up to three weeks following a nuclear attack.

Despite continuing global tensions, Bruce is confident that civilisation will prevail and a nuclear war can be avoided, at least in his lifetime.
