IEMA Considering Evacuations For Some River Communities

The Illinois Emergency Management Agency says 80 days of rain has pushed flood control measures to the brink. Today 200 National Guardsman were activated to help assist in flood control and protection efforts along the Mississippi and Illinois rivers. 


The Acting Director of IEMA Alicia Tate Nadeau (Na-DOUGH) says residents along those rivers need to prepare to leave at a moment’s notice; adding authorities are considering evacuation plans right now for some communities.



IEMA and others want everyone in those areas to have firm plans on how to get out if flooding starts to impact roads and other transportation options in their areas.
