"Our crews areworking diligently to ensure flooded roads are closed off to the motoringpublic and will continue to monitor the conditions to ensure safety acrossIllinois throughout the duration of this storm."

Flooding-related driving tips:

  • Do not drive through floodedareas
  • If a road covered by waterseems shallow enough to cross, do not attempt to do so
  • If your car stalls, do notattempt to push it out; seek higher ground

GovernorPat Quinn this morning activated the State Incident Response Center (SIRC) inSpringfield to assess flooding and severe weather in several areas of the stateand expedite assistance that may be needed by local public safety officials toprotect citizens. The SIRC will remain open as long as needed to support localresponders.

    'Get on Up' and James Brown's Harlem legacy

    "Get on Up" is in theaters now. The film chronicles the career of James Brown, who had a special connection to Harlem and New York. Billy Mitchell is the in-house historian at the historic Apollo Theater. He says the Apollo was a second home to Brown, as it was here where he became an international superstar who appealed to all. But Brown's NYC legacy stretches even further.
