Meredith Campanella and her family leave
for the last time on Saturday, August 27, 2005 after “battening down the hatches” as they had done so many times
before when storms approached. Two days later all that remained were the pilings. Much of the camp was found a half mile to
the west. It had been tossed over the levee and across Hayne Boulevard. Camp-a-Nella was eighty years old.
