No reeree, Wood River never floods. it's far enough away from the river and has a couple of creeks on it's southern and western borders where the water would run off before it gets anywhere close to town anyway. I've ran around east alton and wood river my whole life and have never seen or heard of Wood River flooding. Wood River is also a decent place because unlike many other towns/cities, it has a town mayor and town manager not just a mayor and a bunch of useless politicians. I know the mayor well and the town itself is ran very well where everyone is comfortable. It almost feels like a big, modern Mayberry. (without barney fife). I love it here. I run a neighborhood watch in conjunction with the police dept and my neighborhood has made a complete 180 with wonderful support from the dept. I think you'd like it here.

alton, east alton, wood river, roxana...

all cesspools...

all flood zones...

all toxic...

all plentiful with drugs...

if you like the smell of sulfer, the sounds of gunshots, the sounds of sirens, the site of dirty flood water, the site of plywood windows, the site of sagging pants and golden grills, if you like seeing hookers, then by all means the area is for you...
