Michael Buckman

Many citizens in the Machesney Park area are still experiencing flooding issues and are expressing their concerns and opinions on social media.

There is a social media page called Rock River Flooding, that several citizens have joined to keep informed and expressed their feelings on the Rock River Flooding Situation.

You can view that at https://www.facebook.com/Rock-River-Flooding-715278735499638/ 

Many citizens on there are extremely fed up with the sheriff and the leaders for lying to the citizens that have been effected by the flooding, and still are. And have expressed their frustration with the sheriff and the leaderships.
