Torrential rains cause serious flooding in portions of Joliet

The torrential downpour that fell on the region on Sunday night caused some serious flooding problems throughout Joliet and the surrounding suburbs. A majority of the heavy rains fell on Sunday night. After the flood waters lifted up the pavement of Chicago Street, the road had to be closed from Interstate 80 to Doris Avenue, Joliet Mayor Bob O’Dekirk said at Tuesday’s City Council meeting.
