Residents Look to Return to Normalcy
Residents in the Knox County Community of London Mills are returning to their homes after the Spoon River rose well above the flood stage.

The flood warning for the area was cancelled Monday night.

Over the weekend about 95 percent of the flood water was pumped out of the area, allowing residents to return home.

A town hall meeting was held Monday night at the United Methodist Church in London Mills for residents to hear from City officials what they can look forward to.

London Mills Chief of Police Scott Keithley told residents Lowes has offered to help the town out in a big way.

"Lowes was out today and they donated approximately a $1000 worth of cleanup supplies and they're gonna be back out here on Thursday with at least double that. We are in the process of working with them, they have offered to donate both supplies and manpower to help rebuild the community once we are at the stage and in addition anybody who's in need of any appliances contact the Village Hall and let us know Lowes is going to sell them at their cost to anybody in London Mills."

The offer of selling appliances at cost, according to Lowe's officials, is only being afforded to around eight families in London Mills who lost all their appliances as a result of the flooding.

Residents were also informed that Target would also be donating clothes to those in need.
