Flood wall gives way in Alton IL

ALTON, Il. - Some people living in Alton just can`t catch seem to catch a break with flood waters and levee breaches. While water is cresting in some areas in Alton the water is still on the rise.

A flood wall put in place by Ardent Mills gave way Thursday night. Officials say this is a setback.

On Sunday employees can be seen in boats instead of work trucks.

The City of Alton flood wall is holding up as the city is working to prevent more flooding. City workers have set out concrete blocks to build up the flood wall and city leaders say their flood wall will hold up when the river crests later this week.

Residents say battling flood waters isn`t new in Alton, but this year just seems a bit different
