A Marianna, Fla., RV park owner said he paid the final bill for Hurricane Michael repairs on Monday (Jan. 8), and now he’s starting all over with another natural disaster, according to mypanhandle.com.

Campers at the Merritt’s Mill Pond RV Resort braced for impact Tuesday morning as a tornado moved through the area. General Manager Chuck Mcintosh’s wife woke him up.

“We were going to go shelter and I never got that far, like I said, I stepped out of my door and it went sideways,” Mcintosh said.

Recover will take time and money, but property owner Erwin Jackson knows it will happen.

“The RV park is such a treasure for not only me personally, but this is not a personal thing, I bought it because I wanted to protect this piece of property because Mill Pond has meant so much for people that live here,” Jackson said.
