Flood Waters

This week Central Illinois was hammered with an excessive amount of rain.  There are more fields, roads and houses under water than we have seen in quite some time.

A few of our members have flood waters in their basements and spent all of Thursday afternoon mucking out their homes.  One of our most frequented camp grounds experienced heavy damage.  Camp Wokanda in rural Chillicothe had mudslides and flood waters destroy an outhouse, cause damage to trails and bridges and overall wreck havoc throughout the camp.

Flooding in Central Illinois

Our local Chillicothe Sportsman’s Club was holding a Youth Shooting Invitational this weekend but had to cancel.  The floodgates reached the club and have put the shooting ranges and the camping areas under water.

Students and members of the community have been sandbagging at the highschool all morning.  The waters are supposed to reach record highs this weekend.  Our community has been impacted and we will be out to help bring it back to its feet.
