On a night with a big golf tournament, the Tony Awards and a potentially historic comeback in the NBA Finals, one major story dominated local news stations: the weather.
DANVILLE — City officials are asking Danville residents to report as soon as possible any sinkholes or drainage problems stemming from storms and flooding earlier in the week that haven't already been identified.
The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for Ford and Iroquois counties in effect until Friday morning.
Thunderstorms are possible in these areas on Thursday night with two to three inches of rain possible in spots. This new rain combined with the already saturated ground could lead to flash flooding.
