Governor Rauner tours flooded areas in central Illinois

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD - Governor Bruce Rauner will be getting a first-hand look at flood-ravaged parts of central Illinois today.

He is touring damage in Petersburg at 9:00 AM, Riverton at 10:00 AM, Kincaid at 11:00 AM, and Villa Grove at 1:00 PM.

Rauner spent much of the last two days touring flooded areas in the southern part of the state. 

So far, at least a dozen counties in Illinois have been declared state disaster areas; such a declaration makes resources available to help communities respond and recover from flooding. Sangamon County, for example, will need just over $700,000 in damages to qualify for federal reimbursements.
