Illinois River Levels Dropping but flood warnings continue at Henry and LaSalle
Water levels along the Illinois River are dropping. Residents along the areas affected by recent floods were relieved yesterday as their efforts to sandbag finally seemed to be working. However, the Illinois River at LaSalle is still around 26 feet. It's not expected to get below the 20-foot flood stage until sometime next week. In Henry, the Illinois River is still about 6 feet above the 23-foot flood stage and also is not expected to fall back below flood stage until next week.
Be Careful Cleaning Up After The Floods
State officials say people should be sure to protect themselves against possible disease as they prepare to clean up after recent floods. Public Health Director Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck says flood waters can contaminate food, water, house appliances and just about anything it touches. Flood water and sewer overflows can contain bacteria, fecal material, viruses and other organisms that may cause disease. Those involved in the cleanup process should avoid skin contact with flood and sewer water, keep kids away from flood water and sewage backup, don't eat or drink anything
exposed to flood and sewer water, keep contaminated objects away from your mouth, hands, and nose, and wash your hands frequently.
