  • Storm Warning

    We are in NW PA right on Lake Erie. Early this morning, around 2 am we experienced our 2nd severe storm. Wind, rain and shaking of the Suite for well over an hour. I'm always thankful we have an electric awning. But never more than today.

    Looking out our dinette window, a small TT has lost their awning. It is lying over the side of their unit. Unfortunately, the man who lost it also lost his life trying to save the awning. From what we were told, he leaves a wife and 3 small children. We would rather have donated to help him repair it than to donate to help his family through this horrible event.

    Life is short.

    He was only 36. And our information was incorrect. His wife and 2 children were still inside when another camper found his body outside.

      That is too sad!! Totally agree that would rather help repair versus help bury. We are just south of Toledo...so got the storm just before you. Thank goodness there weren't more deaths or damage.

          While our thoughts are with the family as well, it is curious that the picture shows an upright camper while the news story at the internet link speaks of a camper killed when his unit rolled over onto him.

          Could it be that there was more than one fatality in this storm? Or, was the news story incorrect about the overturned camper?

          At any rate, I'm glad you are OK.

            David hasn't talked to the CG owner yet. But another story also said it fell over on him. Wife and kids were trapped inside.

            We didn't hear anything but the wind and sheets of rain. I grabbed David out of a sound sleep because with the wind strength, I thought we were heading over.

            By 7AM, this is how the TT looked.
