Big Wind at Hammonassette

Went to Hamanassett beach in Ct for weekend. Saturday night rained pretty hard and then at about 3:30 AM a micro burst must have gone through a small portion of the campgrounds. Blew my 10 ft popup cover into the weeds but no damage.

It shook the hell out of my 13000 lb MH though tore down several covers and destroyed several along with a few awnings that were left extended. I got up andwalked around to see if anyone needed help or was injured but everyone was ok.

Been There, Done That!

Had that happen to us one night in the Quinnipiac section of Hammo. It was so bad had to sleep with the slides in. MH was rocking like crazy. Got up next morning and all the tents around us were empty.
Will be there in two weeks.

Pulled into a CG in Montrose, CO. last year and wondered why all the wind indicators mounted on beefy posts. Three days later, we were hit with a microburst (57mph, per neighbors guage)...no rain, no dark clouds and no warning. Just 'BOOM' and it was over in 15 seconds. The top of a small, on site tree was bent over parallel to the ground and our humming bird feeder was MIA. Luckily, it had been a little windy for the patio awning to be out, otherwise it would have been destroyed. Neighbor's TT was blown off it's stabilizer blocks and another's MH window awning braces were badly bent. We were tail into the wind with no damage. Darnedest thing I've ever seen.
