Community builds shelter for resident

When a location wasn't available for a community storm shelter in Carlyle, Kenny Arbuckle volunteered his property. Another spot was found for the shelter, so the community rallied to build a shelter on Arbuckle's property. He uses a wheelchair because of a muscle wasting disease.

CARLYLE — Kenny Arbuckle had a plan for what he would do if a tornado was headed toward his home.

He’d roll his wheelchair into the garage, where he had a chain connected to a pipe which was secured in cement. 

“I’ll just chain myself to that and ride it out,” he thought.
