A young couple from Sussex, New Brunswick, is determined to keep their heads above water after a flood devastated the family owned RV dealership earlier this month.

CTV News Atlantic reported that the flash flood in Sussex destroyed dozens of recreational vehicles at Doug’s Recreation Centre, causing an estimated $2 million in damage.

In some places, water reached almost six-feet high on the property, which Justin Toole and his wife Sarah have owned for just over a year.

“It was the worst day of my life, seeing them go. I mean, this is my baby, this business, this company, these trailers,” says Sarah.

“At first, I didn’t think I’d be able to keep most of the staff on. I didn’t know if I’d be here next week or a week from now, so I’m in a much better place.”

The Tooles say they are overwhelmed by the support shown in their community.

“For four days straight we had a crew of 12 people here, and at any given time, there was coffee and doughnuts and people dropping off lunches and no one ever went hungry,” says Justin. “You know, it was great.”
