River Flood Warning Issued, Governor Activates SIRC


Large areas of farmland can expect to be inundated with water as a flood warning for the Sangamon River takes effect.

 

The river is expected to rise above flood stage by tomorrow evening and continue to rise throughout Saturday morning.

 

Meanwhile Oak Crest Road from the Sangamon River Bridge to Overpass Road is closed due to flooding.

 

The State Incident Response Center in Springfield is assessing flooding in areas throughout the state as more storms with heavy rain are expected.

 

Governor Pat Quinn activated the group to provide assistance to local authorities who may be battling flash foods.

 

After a briefing here in Springfield, Quinn is expected to travel to assess flooding in other areas of the state.
