IEMA: Up to 200 injured after weekend storms

CHICAGO (AP) — Illinois emergency officials say massive storms that killed six people also injured between 150 and 200 people across the state.

That's according to Jonathon Monken, who is the director of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency.

He spoke in Chicago on Monday morning with Gov. Pat Quinn. Monken adds those figures could change.

Monken says most of the injuries are in the Tazewell County community of Washington, where about 120 people were hurt. Some of the injuries were severe.

The storm killed three people in southern Illinois near Brookport, along with two people in New Minden. A sixth person died in Washington.
