Right Place, Wrong Time: Couple’s RV Lifestyle Ruined By Tornado

 Friday, November 8, 2019


Patrick and Michele Mowrey are stuck in Chesapeake.

The couple has been traveling the country for the last six years in their RV, but after a tornado touched down in the Edinburgh area November 1, they have been unable to travel.

Patrick and Michele were inside their RV when the tornado touched down. Michele says she was watching the radar, but thought the storm was going to pass them.

"I walked out of the bathroom and it just stopped," she explained. "Then the radar in the RV and on our phones went off. I said, ’Patrick, it’s a tornado,’ and that’s when the tree hit."

Patrick, who was asleep until the radar went off, says he felt like the RV was being picked up by the wind.
