We had a massive hail storm last night and everything we own, our house, trucks, trailers etc all suffered major hail damage. We were out camping over 120KM from home when this storm hit. It destoryed the camp site, tree's falling on tents (no fatalities, one broken back) We drove home hoping that the terrible nightmare would be over...not so! We came home to this...
Pictures of the Campground taken 12 hours after the storm hit, the clean up crew was already hard at work. We headed back to try to salvage our tent my and fathers holiday trailer (which was sheltered by the tree's are recieved very little damage) There were no fatalities on only one injury. This was a very wide spread tragic event and my thoughts and prayers go out to all the people that will suffer because of this!
Wow, scary!! Glad no one was killed. It only takes one hit from a baseball size hailstone to kill a person. I am so sorry about all of your damages, thank God for insurance huh? My prayers go out to everyone who was injured and suffered property damage during the storm.
Your right, one hit that's it! It was terrible, we had 5 kids with us ranging in age from 8 months old to 10 years old. Hail came thru the roof of the camper luckily I pulled the baby away from that spot within seconds of the hail coming thru the sky light. The two girls aged 9 and 10 were outside in a tent, my husband ran out and held the air matteress over them to try to prevent hail from hitting them. I ran out to check on them with a laundry basket on my head and recieved massive bruises on my legs from where the hail it. It was like a nightmare, my sister, the mother of the 8 month old, is a nurse and she was in very high demand and all the time worrying about her only child. She is a great person and I give her tons of credit, I don't think I would have had the stregth to leave my child in a situation like that. I guess her reward was knowing that she saved people, and her daughter was in very capable hands (Her fave Auntie, ME! LOL)
Wow! Scary! I'm sorry to hear about all of the damage, but I'm glad to hear everyone was okay. Very lucky... the damage is hard to think about and very unfortunate, but things are replaceable. My thoughts are with you guys in your cleanup efforts.
