Destroyed Travel Trailer at Santa Maria RV Park

Destroyed Travel Trailer at Santa Maria RV Park

A severe storm barreled through Mississippi Gulf Coast communities, damaging or destroying about a dozen RV trailers at one campground, downing trees and power lines and cutting electricity in some areas.

The storm blew through the Santa Maria RV Park in Gautier at around 8 p.m. Monday (April 14), knocking some trailers off their blocks and overturning or destroying others.

Park resident Harrold Robbins said he was at the front end of the camper when the wind hit.

“The front end flipped,” he said after returning from a hospital where he was treated for bumps and bruises and Dales got stitches to her head. “It launched me back into the back end. Then it flipped over on the other side and came back up in the air and landed on our car.”

Jessica Cook told television station WLOX her home was knocked off its blocks, but her next-door-neighbor’s was completely destroyed and he was pinned under it. She said the fire department managed to free him and he was taken to a hospital.

Campers at Santa Maria RV Park on Martin Bluff Road in Gautier, Miss., were flipped from possible straight line winds Monday, April 14, 2014, as storms rolled over the Coast. As many as 30 campers were damaged from the storm.

Located at 1815 N. A St., the Woodlands RV Park is now open to all travelers passing through Wellington, Kansas.

Dale Hutchison, co-owner of the Woodlands, said the idea for the RV park came about nearly six months ago during a trip to Alva, Oklahoma.

After the discovery of large oil deposits, Alva was overrun with drillers and other workers who had come to labor in the fields. Without enough proper housing in the town to accommodate the oilmen, many were left to pitch tents, or sleep in campers.

“We saw RV trailers parked all over there,” said Hutchison.

“We talked to people at the oil company, and based on their prediction, there are going to be a lot of people coming,” said Hutchison. “We’re planning for a 10 year boom.”

According to Hutchison, the park’s owners wanted to provide residents with every possible amenity, so all 34 parking slots were rigged with underground sewer and electricity hook-ups, along with cable television connections.
