I am still working on the other two posts from the weekend of Camp Grandma,
but I wanted to post this instead this morning.
We carry a weather radio in our motorhome and we keep it ON. The storms went off by us earlier on Saturday night but the storms were all south or north of us, nothing in our area. But I listened closely each time the radio went off with a warning. If it had been even within 25 miles of us, I would have grabbed the baby and headed to the brick shower building.
According to the article, the campground manager saw it on the weather channel on tv but didn't have time to warn anyone. I would think a weather radio would have been shooting out warnings long before that as the weather moved across the state. That is ... IF someone had one on. Don't get me wrong, I am not blaming the campground manager. We are each responsible for our own safety. I know -- coulda -- shoulda -- woulda! But having a weather radio in your rig and turned ON and set to the three closest counties is the best method to be warned during tornado season like this....
