Clean Water for Flood Victims
With the Mississippi River at high levels, and still rising, safe drinking water is becoming a serious problem for people living along the river. Thursday the Red Cross announced it would distribute water to residents of Pleasant Valley, next it'll hand out water to people who live on Campbell's Island in East Moline.
Bottled water was available Friday morning at the Campbell's Island fire station, and will be again Friday afternoon from 3 to 6 pm, and again Saturday from 9 am until 2 pm.
The Red Cross is working with Rock Island County Emergency Management to help people affected by flooding this spring.
