After several inches of rain in a fairly short period of time, area creeks and rivers are swollen. But, the head of the Kaskaskia levee district says we are holding pretty well so far. Ken Cripe says it isn’t as much the Kaskaskia River, but all that feeds into it and around it.
Meanwhile, those several inches of rain will cause issues for area farmers. And, we’ll talk with Cripe about that coming up tomorrow during NewsCenter.
