Locals of the Ocean View community were stunned by the damage.
"I've been coming here for almost 40 years. I moved away and just came back and heard about it this morning so I traveled down here to see it. It's really heartbreaking," Richard Lang said.
"Thirsty Camel is very important to everyone that grew up in Willoughby. It's a landmark and there aren't many left of those in Ocean View anymore," Bill Underwood said.
