ALTON BVENINO TELEGRAPH Wood River Township Storm Damage Slight WOOD RIVfiR—Storm dam* '«ge in the Wood River-East Alton-Rosewood Heights arms Tuesday night was tett than that of last Wednesday. However, flooding on Old St. Louis road was described as the worst ever seen by Fred Penning, public works superintendent. "I haven't seen that much water and earth washed over that road since the river used to back up before the levee was built, Penning said today. Most damage was caused by wnfer backing up and flooding residential basements. Reports this morning indicate the west side of Wood River had more niinfall than other sections. Penning said one problem of thp storm came when water, which flooded through sandbags into the Commercial Transports, Inc. building on Old St. Louis mad poured through the drains overloading the lift station at tbe west end of Park avenue. Numerous limbs were blown down along Central, Whitelaw and Sixth streets in Wood River. Penning reported that six street department employes worked most of the night in an attempt to keep drains clear so the vater could escape. Illinois Power Co. had three crews out during the night repairing wires in the three-town area, but service was resumed to nearly all customers by 8 a.m. today, according to Zeke Jabusch, office manager of the firm. 5 Treated for Injuries at Twp.Hospital WOOD RIVER- Fred H.
