In California’s Santa Cruz County, a crashing tree crushed two RVs on Thursday (Feb. 17), KGO-TV, San Francisco, reported.

It was not the vacation Robert Margarite, a Ceres resident, and his family expected while at New Brighton State Beach. Thursday morning’s heavy storms caused a massive pine tree to topple over and destroy both their RV and their neighbors’ RV.

Margarite said it was “just raining, we were packing up to leave and she was inside doing dishes and luckily she walked forward and it came down on top of us.”

Still, the uprooted campers could face yet another problem at Sea Cliff State Beach — strong waves. With more rain and wind ahead, rangers are keeping a close eye on water levels. If the waves breach the wall, the park will also shut down.
