Bost: Federal Disaster Relief Will Be Coming for Flood Victims

Bost: Federal Disaster Relief Will Be Coming for Flood Victims

SOUTHERN ILLINOIS — The spring flooding across the country was unprecedented, and many Illinois residents are still cleaning up and figuring out what is next.

After almost five months of many rivers being above flood stage in Illinois, U.S. House Representative Mike Bost says the question is not if the state will get federal disaster money, but how much does the state need.

After going above flood stage in early spring, the Mississippi River at Chester recorded its second highest crest ever on June 10th. The river finally dropped below flood stage in early August.
