Illinoisans Continue to Battle Flood Waters


Volunteers will keep filling sandbags in Meredosia over the weekend, as officials continue to monitor how well levees are holding up against the floodwaters of the Illinois River.

 

The river appears to have crested overnight in Beardstown, and should reach its crest in Meredosia later today.

 

But the waters will recede slowly, keeping enormous pressure on the levees for several more days.

 

Meanwhile, Governor Pat Quinn has added four more counties to the list of state disaster areas, bringing the total to 48 counties now eligible for expanded state assistance.
