    A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. If you live in an area prone to flooding, be prepared to take action should flooding develop. Do not enter or cross flowing water or water of unknown depth, and remember, flood waters are harder to see at night. Never cross a barricaded road.

    A consistent signal for locally heavy rain is forecast, especially tonight. Storm total average rainfall is forecast to range from one to two inches in the Watch area and, with thunderstorms forecast, localized higher totals are possible. This amount of cumulative rainfall will be falling on recently soaked grounds from melted snowfall, so the ability to soak in all this expected rainfall will be compromised and likely to cause flood issues.

Tuesday morning accident on I64 sends truck driver to hospital

Illinois State Police District 19 troopers investigated a Tuesday morning traffic crash on Interstate 64 that sent a Granite City man to the hospital.

According to the preliminary crash report, 47 year old David Keough was traveling east in a 2007 white Freightliner pulling a trailer when he lost control of the vehicle just east of mile post 128 at 7:35 am.

Keough’s truck left the roadway and overturned in the median, and had to be removed from the scene by Rick’s Towing.  Keough was transported to an area hospital by the White County Ambulance Service.  Troopers on the scene were also assisted by IDOT personnel, and the Little Wabash Fire Department.

Keough was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, expired registration, overweight on registration, and failure to retain previous seven days of logs.
