No evacuation orders yet in Utica despite a rising Illinois River

Posted by wlpo on June 24, 2015

Village leaders in Utica are keeping an eye on the rising Illinois River.

The village put out a message urging property owners and business owners to stay alert and at least have a plan in place to evacuate if that’s deemed necessary at some point. As of right now, Utica hasn’t issued an evacuation order.

Just last week the village issued a mandatory evacuation order for homes and businesses in the southern part of the town. Thankfully the river never caused any property damage.
