Michigan storm throws RVs around and tears roof off dealership

At least 40 campers were damaged at Galvanek’s Auto and RV on M-55 near Cadillac, Michigan, when a violent storm roared through, flinging campers through the parking lot and even across the road, reported 9and10news.

Huge trees toppled over like chess pieces, tree trunks and branches crushed cars and downed power lines, and left tens of thousands of people without power across Northern Michigan.

Several cars also suffered damage after a carport flew some 300 feet and part of the business’s roof went flying.

“I was like, holy smokes! I couldn’t believe the wind, I couldn’t believe the amount of wind. It blew a transformer, a great big transformer off, and that’s laying on the ground, all the power lines are down. We’ve had storms here and they might move the trailers a little bit, but these actually moved them across the dirt with the jacks down and everything,” said owner Charles Galvanek.

Glalvenek says he has been working with his insurance agent and had just about every employee in on Wednesday.

To top things off, as soon as he’s done cleaning up the business, he has damage to clean up at his own house.
