Worst Of The Floods Not Over
The Illinois and Mississippi Rivers may be receding in some areas, but IEMA Director Jonathon Monken says the worst isn't over. He says the rivers will likely be impacted once snow starts to melt in other parts of the Midwest. The direct impact will be felt in the Quad Cities and the Metro East as early as next Friday, May 3rd. He says the extra water will force backups on the Illinois and Rock Rivers, which could mean more flooding in areas along those rivers.
Tax Deadline Extended For Those In Disaster Areas

The extension only applies to those who file monthly, quarterly or annual returns that would've been due on the 19th of this month.

Prescription Take Back Day
Prescription Take Back Day is this Saturday in Illinois. People who have unused medications can turn them in at local police stations. They'll accept both prescription and over-the-counter-drugs that are outdated. Officials say this is one of the safest ways to get rid of the drugs because it ensures they don't end up in the wrong hands.
