PEORIA -- Across Illinois, cities are fighting flooding. Here, crews are working around the clock to keep levees strong. They're working 16-hour shifts, pumping water out which is leaking underneath the barrier.

City leaders ask people to not drive before checking out conditions. But many people can't help but take a look. The Illinois River is expected to crest at 30' sometime Tuesday.
