DOOR COUNTY - With recent storms, severe weather is on the minds of many people in Northeast Wisconsin.
But what do you do if you're on vacation, or away from home? One state park has a plan if the weather takes a turn for the worse.
Trailers tossed, and trees toppled after strong storms ripped through this campground near Prairie du Chien Wednesday. It is a stark reminder of what severe weather can do.
284 miles to the north at Potawatomi State Park near Sturgeon Bay, park staff have their eyes on the skies.
"We can see if it's going to be moving up this way or not. We also have the weather radio on too all the time. So I am listening to that, seeing what they're telling us. And warning us about," said Courtney Smith, Potawatomi State Park Visitor Service
Courtney Smith says she is trained to know the park's emergency action plan.
"If there's a severe thunderstorm, we'll go through the campgrounds with our truck lights, and also use our PA system, and sometimes our sirens," said Don McKinnon, Potawatomi State Park Superintendent.
Signs are posted, and campers are urged to head to the shower room. But McKinnon says the park has no shelter from a tornado.
"There's not a lot of good locations for a tornado except for low areas. They can leave the park, or they can choose to stay. It's up to them," said McKinnon.
According to the Door County Visitor Bureau, the county has 17 campgrounds, with 3,105 campsites. The Door County Emergency Services Department coordinates with those facilities.
"Working with the campgrounds proactively. Knowing their campground locations, we'll know a number of individuals that may be in a campground dependent on the manifest provided by the campground operator," said Eric Christensen, Door County Emergency Services Director.
Many campers say they watch the weather, too. Mark and Kate Puls have been camping for 42 years. In that time, they say they have had only a few close calls.
"We do pay attention to it to a point, and then act accordingly. May batten down our hatches a little bit, and then take cover, or drive away," said Kate Puls, camper.
"Part of the game, I made it 64 years, I'll make it a few more," said Mark Puls, camper.
Park officials say even though the park has no Wi-Fi service, many people rely on smart phones for updates and information about severe weather.
