Storm displaces carnival to Dixon High lot

DIXON – Because of this week’s storms and the rising Rock River, the location of the Petunia Festival’s carnival is being moved – but not far.

It’s now being placed just a short distance from the river, in the Dixon High School parking lot. The children’s rides will still be in front of the high school.

For the most part, the Sauk Valley was spared from the majority of damage done during Monday night’s severe thunderstorms.

What damage there was, though, happened mostly in Lee County, authorities said.

Flooded roads, a few downed power lines, and broken tree limbs were the extent of the damage for most of Lee County, with the exception of a sinkhole in Dixon on Monroe Street near Seventh Street (no cars were damaged) and a transformer fire in Amboy, authorities said Tuesday.
