   Life is slowly returning to normal in the river town of Grafton, Illinois.

   The Great River Road has reopened. Raging Rivers Water Park in Grafton will reopen Tuesday morning at 10:30, one week after the flooded Mississippi River forced it to close.  

   The Mississippi continues to recede, but hasn't returned to its banks just yet.  Travel on Highway 67 between the Clark Bridge and Highway 94 in West Alton is still just one lane in each direction.

New information on the second levee breach near West Alton and Rivers Pointe.

Officials now say the breach is very near the confluence, but on the Mississippi River side of the levee system. The breach is between 100 and 150 feet wide.

There is a voluntary evacuation order in effect for over 40 homes that are east of Highway 67.

Water has moved about two miles inside the levee.

   Flooding along the Mississippi River is forcing some St. Charles County residents out of their homes.  That's because the Lincoln-Shield levee along the Mississippi River was breached Monday evening.  

   West Alton officials and the Rivers Pointe Fire Chief issued an alert about 8:30 p.m. advising residents to evacuate.  The evacuation order is voluntary, not mandatory.

   The National Weather Service has issued flash flood warnings for eastern St. Charles County through 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. The weather service also warned that “residents living on streams and creeks should take immediate precautions.”  

   The Missouri Highway Patrol reports that southbound Highway 67 was closed between the Clark Bridge and Highway 94 as a result of the flooding after a temporary barricade erected by MoDOT failed.  Northbound 67 remains open at this hour.

St. Charles officials are now urging residents of West Alton to prepare for a possible evacuation. The area is expected to flood, but the severity remains to be seen. Residents should be making plans to secure their homes and property if an evacuation order is necessary.
