08/16/2016 Franklin County, IL – Flooding Closes Roads

Shot Date: August 16, 2016

Several days of rain finally came to an end on Tuesday after dumping over a foot in places across southern Illinois. Many areas received easily two months worth of rain in four days. Flooding continued today as waters from area ditches and creeks continued to overflow into fields and roads, causing officials to close many roads across the region.

Video package shot in Franklin County, IL north of the town of Christopher where county officials closed numerous roads due to overrunning water. Several roads were impacted by the overflowing Hog Creek, which is one of numerous area small streams to be flowing into the Big Muddy River, which is expected to crest over the weekend in at least Moderate Flood Stage. Flood Warnings are in effect indefinitely for several southern Illinois Rivers as the drainage will fill those rivers to well over flood stage.
