LCC is down!

By ralspace

During the SEEKER trials last year we experienced strong winds, but not like this. A huge dust devil hit the LCC square. Elie managed to photograph the devil after it passed our camp:

And what it left behind:

The wreckage 4
The wreckage 1
The wreckage 2
The wreckage 3

Luckily to the well built camp and layout taking strong winds into account (using cars as windbreak), the emergency recovery plan and risk assessments no-one was injured. We have even found a mission chair.
