Vibe - storm damage

This was on the local news tonight. Living in tornado alley, I worry about camping when storms roll through. I hope everyone in this one is OK. Picture was taken after a tornado went through Priceville, AL tonight.

Being in an RV in a tornado is not a good proposition. Had one south of us about a month ago that went through a trailer park and took out some 5ers. Another hit an RV park in Lousiana north of New Orleans along the Mississippi earlier this year and wiped out a lot of trailers.

Even an EF0 or an EF1 will devastate an RV park. I see this and my heart breaks. We were in an RV park in New Mexico 12 years ago when a small tornado hit the west side and took out a new Class A motor home and a park model 8X40. We had a front row seat (I don't care for an encore, thank you) and had nowhere to hide. Without storm shelters, you don't have much of a chance.
