One injured, Roof collapses at Perryville apartment building

PERRYVILLE, MO (KFVS) - One person was injured after the roof collapsed at a Perryville apartment building.

Several reports of damage are coming out of Perryville, MO.  Winds and storms caused the roof to collapse at the Hill Top apartment building.  Crews had to rescue at least one person from the building who was trapped in some rubble. Fortunately, no one else was hurt.

The storm system did tie up some traffic along Interstate 55 at Perryville on Tuesday night. Northbound lanes were closed for a couple of hours after winds blew over a tractor trailer rig. Traffic was back to normal by 11:30 Tuesday night.

Heartland News is working to confirm reports of damage to one of the public school buildings in Perryville.
