Metcalf, IL. (ECWd) –

Pictures are of flooding in Metcalf – mostly on Metcalf Road, with County Road 6 being the worst. Mayor Cheryl Gill said it could have been a lot worse had the village not worked with the Edgar County Highway Department in 2012 to put new drainage in the west side of town.

Wabash Street, west of Metcalf Road was impassable at one point.

It was not as bad as other parts of the County, and these pictures were taken after water started receding.
