The Flood of 2013 continues in Illinois, with much of the focus now on the middle of the state. The Illinois River is impacting towns like Meredosia, Beardstown, and locally, Hardin (pictured).  The United States Army Corps of Engineers is doing what it can to ensure the safety of those who live in areas impacted by the flooding.

Army Corps of Engineers Major General John Peabody visited the area on Tuesday and says the floods are dangerous and should not be taken lightly.

The Brussels Ferry between Jersey and Calhoun County is closed because of high water on the Illinois River, but the Joe Page Bridge at Hardin remains open as does the Kampsville Ferry.  The Illinois River at Hardin is scheduled to crest on Saturday at 36.5 feet.  Flood stage is 25 feet.
