THANKS TO A WEEK OF HEAVY RAINS…LAST MONTH WAS THE SECOND WETTEST APRIL ON RECORD IN ILLINOIS. 
 
AVERAGE STATEWIDE PRECIPITATION FOR APRIL CAME IN AT ABOUT SEVEN INCHES, BUT SOME AREAS RECEIVED A LOT MORE…ESPECIALLY OVER THE LAST SEVEN DAYS SAYS STATE CLIMATOLOGIST JIM ANGEL.
 
 
OTHER AREAS WITH BIG RECENT RAIN TOTALS INCLUDE KASKASKIA WITH NEARLY NINE INCHES…STEELEVILLE AND MURPHYSBORO WITH MORE THAN EIGHT AND A HALF INCHES AND CHESTER AND FLORA WITH OVER EIGHT INCHES.
 
 
ANGEL SAYS SMALLER RIVERS AND STREAMS REACT QUICKLY TO HEAVY RAINFALL, SO MOST OF THE ATTENTION NOW IS ON WHEN THE LARGER RIVERS WILL PEAK.
