This summer marks the 25th anniversary of the Great Flood of 1993. One of the hardest hit areas in Illinois was near Hull in Pike County where a levee breech flooded 40,000 acres of farmland in the Sny Island Levee Drainage District says past Pike County Farm Bureau President Jim Koeller.
 
 
The Mississippi River level reached a record 31.55 feet on that day. 
The Sny levee system runs a total of 54-miles and covers nearly 110,000 acres of which 66,000 remained protected during 1993.
