What’s been described as a ‘tornado’ ripped through the Purrumbete Holiday Park near Camperdown on Wednesday night.

It follows a lashing of wild weather across Victoria.

Teegan Dolling from 7 News trekked west on Thursday to inspect the damage.

She told Neil Mitchell it “looked like a war zone”.

“It is absolutely incredible,” she said.

“On the other side of the caravan park here there are cabins that haven’t been touched – they look in a perfect state.

“But there are others that have been ripped open.”

Bill, the owner of one of the destroyed caravans, spoke to 3AW’s Tom Elliott.

He was on his way to Camperdown to inspect the damage.

“I had phone calls this morning saying that my site has been opened up like a sardine can,” he said.

“My place is write off.”
