MH + Tropical Storm = ???

We are headed to Hilton Head tomorrow and just watched the news this morning and there looks like there could be a tropical storm headed up that way. If this is the case we will head home but it got me thinking what are some of the worst storms you all have been caught in?

Since there are wheels on the RV, there is no reason to ever stay around for a tropical storm. Can't do much about a tornado that drops down near where one is parked, but have never had that experience.

Back in the early 90's, when living in Homestead, FL, I owned a 25 foot TT that we could not remove from harms way. I was a LEO at the time and had my family evacuate prior to Hurricane Andrew's approach. I stayed and worked as required. Andrew hit Homestead with a vengence, destroyed my home and took the TT and turned it into a pretzel, dropping it in a neighbors yard.

I replaced the TT with a class C MH and never again let that rig stay anywhere near a tropical storm or hurricane. We moved it several times over the years as storms approached. Now, I'm retired, living in the mountains of Tennessee and don't worry about Hurricanes, other then the fact that one of my grown kids lives in Miami and other in Key West.

And oh, by the way, now we are concerned with Tornadoes! But living up on the Cumberland Plateau they are somewhat rare. Knock on wood.
