Local Counties Declared Disaster Areas

Posted by wlpo on April 19, 2013

Governor Pat Quinn has officially declared Bureau, La Salle and Putnam Counties as state disaster areas.

State resources like equipment, manpower and eventually federal aid can be used by local counties to clean up after historic flooding.  In making the declaration, Quinn says “Illinois has seen an incredible level of devastation and reports indicate that conditions will get worse in the coming days”.

The governor is planning to make several stops around the state today to assess flood damage but is not scheduled to come to the Illinois Valley.
