Video: See RVs destroyed by Hurricane Dorian

If you’d like to get an idea of how an RV can withstand a major hurricane, watch this video from Emerald Isle, North Carolina, which was slammed by Hurricane Dorian in early September.

The video runs a long 7 minutes (could have been edited to 2 minutes), but within that time you will see dozens of RVs either destroyed or slammed side-by-side with others, which surely caused significant damage.

The video illustrates why it’s a terrible idea to remain in an RV with a violent storm on the way. In some of the RVs you’ll see here, the RVs are no more than a stack of rubble with the wheels sticking up somewhere. Nobody would have ever survived in one of those when the storm hit.

The safety warnings given in the article accompanying the video are spot on and should be heeded. That said, it’s obvious that the RVs are in a storage lot and were originally parked just inches away from each other.
