Evacuations are under way in the town of Marseilles, southwest of Joliet.

Parts of the town are under water due to a possible levee break caused by barges hitting the dam. Many cars are under water and roads have been closed.

The town is using school buses and shuttle buses to evacuate residents, including many seniors living in a nursing home close to the damaged dam.
