Governor Pat Quinn has added four more counties...Clark, Crawford, Lawrence and Warren...to the state disaster declaration, bringing the number of counties with expanded access to state emergency resources to 48. The declarations also allow the state to formally pursue federal relief and support for impacted counties.
The declarations come as much of Illinois continues to battle flooding in the aftermath of heavy rainstorms earlier this month.
