One of our guys at work leg is broke. Happened at rv park disaster. We have over 100 on night shift. Less than half came in tonight. They were at Sugar Hill. Lots of dayshift is too. Haven't heard from all of them. DW very shook up. This was just too close. We heard it go by our park.

Glad you guys are OK. From up here in NW LA it was a surprise as we were forecast for the same, but didn't get it. Hope all turns out well. Glad you guys are OK.

All, That storm just kept heading our way. It actually missed us by 60 miles but it killed 4 people here in Va. No RV issues but 3 of the people were in a trailer. 2 adults and a 2 year old. Lesson: keep that radio and /or smart phone on all the time so any alert can be heard! Have a safe weather day. Pat

Also, when checking into a campground get the name of the county in which you are staying. Many weather alerts are given by county.

We had a near miss ( by only a couple miles). We are near Warsaw,VA and the tornado EF3 rolled just outside Tappahannock , cross a creek then just up the road from us.

One of the topics that will be addressed at the East Coast Rally for those attending. Was able to get some data from some of the experts in Florida, Kansas, and Texas Tech to present.
