CORNING, Calif. -- For many of the people staying at the Woodson Bridge RV Park, they told Action News Now relocating is not a new feeling. Many of the people who relocated are Camp Fire survivors.

Heavy wind pushed signs back and forth at the Woodson Bridge RV Park and water came up to the ankles.

In light of conditions, the owner asked everyone at the RV park to go. Many people relocated to a nearby park in Corning.

"She said you have to go, so at 6:30 she knocked on my door," said Mary Lou Wieger, a Camp Fire survivor. 

Wieger said relocating not once, but twice hasn't been easy.

"It's devastating, it's the most devastating thing to happen in my life," said Wieger.

For the Camp Fire survivors staying at the Woodson Bridge RV Park, they told us first fire pushed them out of their homes and now flooding has pushed them out of their new homes. Now, they're asking for normalcy that will stick.

"This is what I salvaged out of the fire, is my daughter made a little spoon holder with hearts," said Kelly Motzkus, a Camp Fire survivor.

Old memories like these are what keep Motzkus grounded in what used to be.

"I'm hanging in there, but it's very stressful. I've got some PTSD issues, having panic attacks at night," said Motzkus.

But while it's been a trying time, Motzkus said she'll keep on pushing through, fire or flood.

"If I have to I'll get pontoons for the next flood, be a houseboat," said Motzkus.
