Flooding Concerns Brings Out Sandbags in Beardstown


Flooding fears are mounting, as the Illinois River continues climbing.

 

They’re filling sandbags in Beardstown, where the river is expected to crest at an all-time high by the end of the week.

 

That expected crest over 30 feet is adding to concerns that levees could be breached, inundating the town with floodwaters.

 

Governor Pat Quinn visits Meredosia today, where volunteers have been filling sandbags all weekend.

 

Making matters worse, more rain is in the forecast for tonight and Tuesday, with as much as another inch expected to fall.
