Recent Winter Storms

In response to the recent winter storms causing large snow accumulations and frigid windchill temperatures, this proclamation declares all counties in the State of Illinois as disaster areas. Since local resources and capabilities may be exhausted, State resources are needed to recover from the effects of the severe winter weather. This proclamation shall be effective immediately and remain in effect for 30 days.

Chicago Protest

Following George Floyd’s death, large public protests emerged in communities across the United States, including Chicago and throughout Illinois. Thousands of people expressed their pain, fear and rage at the deaths of African Americans, caused by centuries of individual and systemic racism. After hours of peaceful protests, tensions heightened with aggressive action, including setting cars on fire, vandalizing buildings, and looting. The City of Chicago and several other communities requested assistance from the State of Illinois. These proclamations shall be effective immediately and remain in effect for 30 days from their issuance.

Bureau County Flooding

The City of DePue in Bureau County suffered significant and extensive damage due to thunderstorms on May 28, 2020. The area saw 3.00 inches of rain in 50 minutes, causing high impact flash flooding. As a result, its residents continue to struggle to repair the damages. Therefore, this proclamation declares Illinois a disaster area, specifically Bureau County. This proclamation shall be effective immediately and remain in effect for 30 days.
