The Rock River crested its banks and flooded Shore Drive on Saturday, March 16 in Machesney Park, Illinois.
CNN  — 

Historic flooding in the Midwest last March inundated thousands of homes, swamping farms and forcing people into shelters.

It has killed livestock, ruined harvests and made the future look bleak for many farmers - some still reeling from the 2011 floods.

There are several organizations helping victims right now with shelter, food, and water. Relief groups are also standing by to provide long-term relief.
