“We’ve never had a flood as pervasive as it is in the whole state of Illinois,” Quinn says.
“Maybe Noah had a flood like this but we are really looking at one of the most challenging flood-times we’ve had in the history of our state. This is a very important that we prepare for the river water headed our way.’
Quinn is also urging residents and businesses to keep detailed records of the flood damage. He says that will help when the state tries to secure federal recovery dollars. Quinn says increased flooding issues are expected as water from the north makes its way through the Peoria-area.
