Tornadoes in North Texas

https://cbsdallas.files.wordpress.co...0&h=200&crop=1

This is the remnants of an RV park outside of Dallas after last night's storms.
Only 6 were injured, no fatalities.

True - however there were 11 fatalities as a result of the EF 2 and 3 tornadoes.

Second deadliest tornado in North Texas in decades.

RIP

My sister lives on Barnes Bridge Rd. (mentioned in this last posted article). Her husband said they had NO bad weather. He might have been asleep!

All this happened less than 60 miles from where we live.

Here's another report: 11 Confirmed Dead Following Storms And Tornadoes In North Texas « CBS Dallas / Fort Worth

Yes, there were 11 fatalities. ...none in the RV park.

It was less than 5 miles from where our youngest daughters lives, sad sad deal.

If you had to stay in a bad situation, would it be better to hook your trailer to the tow vehicle for the extra stability if you knew there were high winds coming? I've thought about this while boondocking on the South Dakota prairie. I am curious as to what people think and the pro or cons.

Never had to deal with it - however there's many variables involved IMO,including overall length of rig,facing into wind or broadside,weight,wind speed,etc.

If I had my druthers, I would try to either face into the wind or from behind. Also hooked up and ready to leave at a moments notice and pre/study a real map for all possible escape routes. Then act accordingly!
