In Fox Lake, A Sigh Of Relief As Flood Waters Recede

(CBS) – No one is happier to see the sun than those in water-logged Fox Lake, where flood cleanup continues.

Pistakee Lake is lapping itself back to where she belongs, one lick at a time, CBS 2’s Brad Edwards reports.

“I was thinking the sand-bagging and the keeping the water out and whatever was the worst, but the cleanup is actually the worst,” resident Kerri Bloom says.

At 5 Star Marina, they’re still calculating the financial damage. One thing is clear to Juaquin Dorad: It’s the worst flood they’ve seen, even worse than 2013.

There is good news. The weather forecast calls for sunny skies, and water levels dropped 3 inches alone on Friday, locals say.
