    Illinois River Flooding


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     landonmiller captured footage of high flood waters from the Illinois River in Peru, Illinois. He says prior to the flooding on April 19, local businesses along the river added concrete barriers and sandbags to try to minimize the flood damage. 'However, you'll notice the barriers at the Waterstreet Pub – a restaurant and bar -- have been breached and the building across the river is almost completely under water,' he said. 'This flood beat the record that was set in 2008. The record before that was in 1982,' he added.
