IEMA and Other Fight Floods In Age of COIVD

ILLINOIS (RFD) — River towns across Illinois have recently been sandbagging to prevent floods. Some of that work was done in Meredosia, a town along the Illinois river. A levee was raised five feet to protect against a possible 30-foot river. But this year sandbagging had to be done while trying to observe social distancing efforts.

Alicia Tate Nadeau, Director of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, says changes were made to accommodate both COIVD-19 and lessons learned from last year’s flooding.

The Department of Corrections now fills sandbags at correctional facilities – eliminating the need to move prisoners around the state.
