First time since 1943

I got word that at 2:08 p.m. today, water from the Illinois River went over the levee at the Emiquon Preserve's Thompson Lake -- where UIS operates a field research station . It's the first time since 1943 the levee has been overtopped. The picture below was taken from the top of that high levee, on the west side of the river near Havana, by UIS's Blake Wood last fall. So all the land you see in the foreground is now under water. (Anybody know how high that levee is?) As we learned anew in the 1993 floods, nature always wins. Always.
