High winds flip campers, close Ohio highway

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say one man was injured when strong storms overturned recreational vehicles at an Ohio campground.

The line of storms on Sunday afternoon ripped through the Walnut Lake campground in Jeffersonville between Columbus and Cincinnati. Media reports say the injured man was in an RV that flipped several times in the high straight-line winds.

He was taken to a hospital but is expected to be OK.

Authorities also closed Interstate 71 because of downed power lines and trees in that area. Traffic backed up for miles as crews cleared the highway.
