Floods challenge Downers Grove community
DOWNERS GROVE – The Downers Grove community is continuing the clean-up effort this week following Thursday's big storm that flooded roadways, closed schools and sent DuPage County into a state of emergency.
Rain began pouring heavily last Wednesday evening, and by early Thursday morning, basements were flooding and many roads were impassable throughout much of Downers Grove.
Resident Andy McDonald said he is shopping for a new car this week after his vehicle became submerged near Douglas Road and Rogers Street. He ran into standing water after leaving the house at 4:30 a.m., he said, before roadblocks or other warnings were in place.
