I live in a Chicago suburb. Our news stations do not carry much about northwestern Illinois. Is there something that we can do to help?

Ann,I agree,, if I didn't have freinds and a boat on the river, I wouldn't have herd a thing about it. I saw it with my own eyes and for me, the only good thing about it, was the fact that I have a boat, and not a home there.

Yes some of these people on that side of town lost everything including my 26 year old daughter she lost a brand new front load washer and dryer brand new kitchen stove furniture was floating bedroom furniture every time you pick up something in your home think of them they all have everything under nasty muddy water.What ever you can bring to the drop off in downtown Savanna or mail to them would be great.They have worked so hard for all that they had and now have nothing.VERY VERY SAD. It was a matter of 2 1/2 hours it took for the water to destroy all of it. Thank You for any help you can give....
