All the sites in this park are permanents. Some park models, some trailers that do not move. No overnights. My DIL used to own a trailer in the park. Most of them do not live there all the time. They are vacation homes. I am sure some people stayed but most were empty. Moving these trailers would have been impossible as most have decks attached, etc.

Really? Ray Charles could see that those were not all permanent as some were. Some may have been in storage and not hooked to anything. We live here and I am pretty sure our news coverage is better than what you get around the country. Hate to see anyone lose their stuff.

There are 2 RV parks almost side by side in Emerald Isle.

The Hurricane had not arrived when the tornado touched down.

The Mandatory Evacuation for Emerald Isle was 7 PM on the day the tornado hit in the early AM so these folks had not been advised to leave when this weather event occurred.

There is an RV Storage lot that is part of the Holiday Travel Park which is next to the Boardwalk RV Park where the Park Models were impacted. The towables that were turned over were in the storage lot.

The lady who was in her camper when the tornado hit MAY have been checking on her unit to make sure it was ready for the arrival of Dorian. That is indeed what I always do when we are 12 hours before the arrival of any hurricane.

You said "Tornado" not Tornado season yet (Though there have been a couple pre-season ones I'm told)

Is HURRICANE season and you do not get weeks of warning with tornados
You do with Hurricane.

The hurricane did indeed spawn tornadoes over land. It's been on the news.

Hurricanes have caused tornadoes for ever. And nobody has taught any weather system how to read a calendar.
Was the injured women one of the 30% that knew they where not close to Alabama?

We live about an hour South of EI. This hurricane spawned a LOT of tornadoes. We had 2 touch down within an hour of each other about 3 miles from our house.

RVs and tornadoes are not a good combination. Tying yours down is great but if the neighbors is flying around through yours it really doesn't matter.

Lots of variables here between building codes, land use, zoning, permanent use, temporary use, etc. Easy for everyone to say what "should" have been done after the fact.
