An aerial photo of Water Street in Peru, Ill., Friday, April 19, 2013, shows the Illinois River at record flood levels for the area. Restaurants such as Waterstreet Pub and Brandy's, pictured, prepared for the flooding Thursday by emptying out the lower levels of their businesses and building barricades of concrete, plastic tarp and sandbags. Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn on Friday declared 38 counties as state disaster areas. He said reports indicate that conditions will get worse in the coming days. (AP Photo/NewsTribune, Genna Ord)
