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.
