Bureau County declared disaster area from flooding
PRINCETON — Even before the rains had stopped on Thursday, Gov. Pat Quinn declared 38 counties, including Bureau, as state disaster areas.
“Illinois has seen an incredible level of devastation and reports indicate that conditions will get worse in the coming days,” Quinn said. “We want to ensure that every county gets the assistance they need and this declaration will give every affected community access to available resources.”
The Princeton Water Treatment Plant recorded 2.10 inches of rain received on Wednesday and 3.87 inches of rain on Thursday. The heavy rainfall resulted in flooded basements, flooded streets and roads, flooded yards and flooded fields throughout Princeton, Bureau County and neighboring counties.
