Quad Cities National Weather Service

For the second year in a row, the risk of major flooding on the Mississippi River is high. Today, the National Weather Service in the Quad Cities released its first Spring Flood Outlook.

Michelle O'Neill reports the agency held a press conference at its office in Davenport following last year's record flood.

Workers from a federal agency will be on hand through early next month to help people impacted by flooding. Starting tomorrow, the US Small Business Administration will open four Disaster Loan Outreach Centers in Illinois.

The US Small Business Adminstration has issued a disaster declaration for Illinois.

People in Illinois won't get any help from FEMA to recover from this year's record-breaking floods. Unless the federal agency changes its mind after an appeal from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency.

Nearly six months after the Mississippi River flooded dozens of Davenport companies, most of them are back in business. The Downtown Davenport Partnership says 75 to 80 companies across the Quad Cities were impacted by the flood, with about 35 of them located in downtown Davenport.

Some flood victims still have sandbags, ruined drywall, and flood debris to get rid of. And thanks to donors and Habitat for Humanity, help is available to renters and homeowners for flood clean up.
