In the North, we rarely is a house built on a slab. Mostly I believe because, homes built on a slab would have to be heated all through Winter or the foundation would crack. So if you were to leave for a few days,week etc, you would still need to heat your home.
Is there a reason to build on slabs in the South? Is it because of cost, or is there another issue that I am unaware for not building a cellar?

I really don't know, b/c some of those people talked about surviving it in their storm cellars. After what happened in '99, I have to wonder why at least the schools weren't built with one. The whole thing is just so horrible. I can't even fathom it. :(
