SYCAMORE – An expected half-inch of rainfall today should not affect any county floodplains, including Evergreen Village Mobile Home Park, officials said Monday.

Dennis Miller, the coordinator of the DeKalb County Emergency Services and Disaster Agency, said Evergreen Village residents were allowed to return to their homes Sunday afternoon after park owners received the OK to restore power.

Residents had been evacuated Thursday because of flooding. The Kishwaukee River was measured at 4 feet below flood stage levels Monday afternoon, and Miller said the rainfall should not cause significant increases.
