Flash Flood Warning and High River Levels Remain After Strong Rains


The rain is over for now, but the remnants remain.

 

A flash flood warning remains in effect for low-lying areas along Sugar Creek downstream of Lake Springfield.

 

Heavy rains over the last several days prompted officials to release water from Spaulding Dam, in turn leading to rapid rises in water levels downstream.

 

Authorities say people should stay away from the affected flood zones.

 

That warning is in effect through early afternoon.

 

A flood warning is also in effect for the Sangamon River at Riverton and Petersburg, but that moderate flooding should only affect farmland.
