Voluntary evacuation in place for several Alexander Co. communities. Joshua Murray Dec 30, 2015 3:16 PM ALEXANDER COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - Alexander County Board Chairman Chalen Tatum has announced that a voluntary evacuation has been put in place effective immediately for several communities due to concerns that the Lynn Small Levee may not be able to hold the water levels being predicted from the Mississippi River. He said the current prediction is higher than what was experienced in 1993, and the levee didn’t hold then. Volunteers are out putting rocks and sandbags on the levee in hopes of reinforcing it. The communities involved include Fayville, Cache, Miller City, Willard, Hodges Park, Unity, Olive Branch and Sandusky. If people choose to evacuate, please call either Tatum at (618)-521-8102 or Sheriff Brown at (618)-203-6057 so that emergency crews are aware which homes have been evacuated

On behalf of the Cairo Police Department, we would like to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season. Crime prevention tips for the holiday's. When parking your vehicle to go shopping, remember where you parked it! Always park in a well lit and well traveled area. Do not park in a remote dark area. When you return to your vehicle, scan the interior of your car to be sure no one is hiding inside. Check to see if you are being followed. Have your keys in hand when approaching your vehicle. You will be ready to unlock the door and will not be delayed by fumbling and looking for your keys. When storing items purchased at the stores, place them out of sight. The best place is in a locked trunk. Do not leave your purse, wallet, or cellular telephone in plain view. Don't resist if someone tries to take any of your belongings. Don't chase someone who robs you, they may have a weapon. Instead call 911. Lock your vehicle and put up your windows even while you are driving. If you go to an automatic teller machine for cash, check for people around and make sure it is well lit and in a safe location. Carry only the credit cards you need and avoid carrying large amounts of cash. Beware of the "a good deal" scams. Things are not always what they appear to be. If you are purchasing toys for small children, be sure that they are safe. You will be surprised what a small child can swallow or what can injure them. Drive defensively. Traffic is heavier during the holidays. Drivers may also have indulged in too much holiday spirits.
