Even if it were true, you would need a canoe to get it in River Grove. The station is surrounded by water from the flooded Des Plaines River.
Cars would be hard-pressed to get anywhere near a pump.

WBBM Newsradio listener Jim Deveros sent in the picture.
While there is no official word on what caused the glitch, the water likely had something to do with it.
