Cairo evacuation ends

CAIRO, IL (KRCU) - The mandatory evacuation of Cairo, Illinois is now over.

Mayor Tyrone Coleman announced that residents can begin return to homes and businesses can re-open.

The city has been under a mandatory evacuation since May 2.

River levels at Cairo have fallen since the detonation of the Birds Point Levee in Southeast Missouri. The city’s streets are still pockmarked by large sand boils.
