"Driving into flooded portions of roads can bedangerous and even deadly, as flood waters can quickly carry your vehicleaway," said Illinois Transportation Secretary Ann L. Schneider. "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.

    Brooklyn's final pitch to hold the 2016 Democratic national convention was centered on New York City's robust mass transit system -- and a pledge to learn "from the mistakes" from the last time the city hosted a presidential convention. The Republicans gathered in New York in 2004 to re-nominate President George W. Bush, choosing to meet in deep-blue Manhattan less than three years after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
