SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) _ Heavy rains have inundated parts of central Illinois including campers at the Illinois State fair in Springfield.
The Springfield State Journal-Register reports firefighters are going camper to camper to check on the welfare of those inside after several feet of water surrounded the units.
The newspaper says a woman had to be pulled from her submerged car in Springfield.
The fair closed early, causing the cancellation of a Grandstand concert by Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo and Melissa Etheridge.
The National Weather Service reports more than 5 inches of rain fell at Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport within two hours.
Police reported water over parts of Interstate 155 and a car in a ditch because of the high water in Tazewell County.
