U.S. Senators Mark Kirk and Dick Durbin received updates on the potentially record flooding and severe weather occurring in Illinois Thursday.
The senators released the following statement:
“We have been monitoring the storm and flooding situation throughout the state of Illinois. The Director of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, Jonathon Monken, and various other state and local officials have assured us that they are in communication with federal agencies that may be able to assist in their emergency response effort. If more federal resources are needed, we stand ready with the rest of the Illinois Congressional Delegation to ensure that those resources are made available as quickly as possible.”
