Overnight storms flip campers at Du Quoin State Fairgrounds

Strong storms early Sunday morning caused some damage in the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds.

According to David Searby with Perry County Emergency Services, three RV campers were overturned by high winds.

Searby says people were inside the campers when they flipped.

The Du Quoin Fire Department responded to the fairgrounds and firefighters were able to get all of those campers out of the RVs safely.

Searby says no major injuries were reported.

A weather spotter measured wind speeds at upwards of 80 MPH near the Du Quoin city limits.
