Several campers flipped over at Backyard Campground LLC, sending one person to the hospital, said the campground's owner.

"It's pretty devastating here," owner Nancy Heimann said. "But everything can be replaced."

The campground is on County Road KK near Gratiot.

Heimann said about 10 campers flipped over in the campground because of storms near Lafayette County.

Only one of the campers that flipped was occupied at the time, Heimann said. Multiple people were inside, and one person had a broken arm as a result.

Heimann said there was noticeable damage in the area because of the storms.
