Berwyn, Cicero spared heavy flooding; nearby areas hit hard
Heavy rains overnight and through the morning April 18 led to street closures all over the west suburbs, particularly in those communities along the Des Plaines River and Salt Creek.
Berwyn and Cicero officials said while their problems were nothing like other communities along the river and Salt Creek, public works crews stayed busy.
Water pressure blew the cap of a Metropolitan Water Reclamation District interceptor at 22nd Street and East Avenue in Berwyn, and parts of East Avenue were closed at Cermak Road.
