Those Staying in Campers Battle the Wind

Posted:

Those staying in campers tried their best not to blow away.

Bruce Roeder, an owner of KOA Kampground in Bismarck says they didn't have any damage to trees or campers that he knows of.

Most campers prepare for these cold and windy conditions by adding skirting around their RVs and making sure they're set hard into the ground.

With no severe damage to report, they say the biggest impact was the noise.

"It kept us awake. I mean it, those gusts at times - even as set as this trailer looks, it would rock it some," says Bruce Roeder, Owner, KOA Kampground.

"It's a little scary and we didn't get a lot of sleep in the last couple of nights here because we'll wake up and you can actually feel the camper kind of shaking," says Tamara Grubich.

Roeder says one of the U-hauls parked out front of the campsite blew back 20 feet and up against a snowbank during the night.
