Towns Battle Flood Waters with Hope and Sandbags


Officials in Beardstown remain hopeful that levees and flood walls will be enough to prevent significant damage from the near-record-high levels of the Illinois River.

 

But the town has closed schools and cancelled prom for this weekend as a precaution.

 

Meredosia also has some tense hours ahead, as it waits to see whether its levee and a sandbagging effort can hold up against the rising river waters.

 

The Illinois River isn’t expected to crest there until Friday.
