Remember September 2018

Flooding on Dartmouth Road in Flossmoor lookingtoward the dead end following storms Friday night. (Provided photo) The first call came in at 8:05 p.m. last Friday night.

A car was stalled at the flooded intersection of Sterling Avenue and Flossmoor Road in downtown Flossmoor. With heavy rain falling for most of the evening, streets in the bowl-like downtown area were already under several feet of water. The Flossmoor Road viaduct, with about five feet of water under the Metra tracks, was impassable.
