OKLAHOMA CITY -

At the Roadrunner RV Park, the damage is so widespread. People say it looks like Mother Nature came in with a rake and tossed the trailers and RVs around like leaves.

People staying there were from as far away as California, Louisiana, and Arkansas.

The owners told News 9 about 125 people were there before the storm hit. That doesn't mean all of them stayed during that time, some packed up and left, some just took shelter elsewhere.

About 30 people at the RV park stayed in the RV park's storm shelter, and they were all safe. Some people actually stayed in their trailer when the tornado hit and those are some of the injured.

β€œI was in shock, just complete shock. I mean, seeing it on the news and hearing the storms. But to actually see it happen to you is kind of a devastating experience,” said Joshua Gray, who lost his trailer in the tornado.

β€œIt's just heartbreaking and a lot of these people are senior citizens, but they're troopers. They are just taking it real good, everybody is thankful that they're okay,” said RV Park Owner Yvonne Gonzales.

Right now, a lot of the storm victims are waiting on their insurance adjusters to look at the damage, but really the cleanup process is slowly starting to begin from small personal items being picked up to really big trailers being turned upright.

The owners told News 9, they've had the park for 25 years and it's never been hit before, but that changed with this tornado.
