THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES IS URGING THE PUBLIC TO STAY OFF ILLINOIS RIVERS. 

 

NEARLY ALL OF THE WATERWAYS IN ILLINOIS ARE AT FLOOD STAGE…AND PORTIONS OF THE ILLINOIS, KASKASKIA AND FOX RIVERS ARE CLOSED SAYS D-N-R SPOKESPERSON RACHEL TORBERT.

 

 

EVEN IF A RIVER ISN’T OFFICIALLY CLOSED…MOST ARE AT FLOOD STAGE AND POSE SEVERAL DANGERS SAYS D-N-R SPOKESPERSON RACHEL TORBERT. THAT INCLUDES STRONG CURRENTS AND DEBRIS.

 

 

TORBERT ALSO WARNS RESIDENTS TO STAY OFF OF LEVEES, SINCE MANY ARE CRITICALLY UNSTABLE AT THIS POINT.
