Storms hit St. Charles, punish festival

(KMOV) -- St. Charles was hit hard by the powerful storms sweeping through the area Friday.

Winds leveled tents set up for the Festival of the Hills, and then came the rain. Vendors were soaked, holding the tents down.

Part of the fence at Duschene High School tennis courts was torn down by the winds. Produce went scattering at Vaccarro's Produce after the winds crunched their tent. Employees hid in a cooler.

Tree limbs were knocked down and power was knocked out for some in the city.
