MITCHELL, Ill. (KMOV.com) - A voluntary evacuation was issued for residents in Lakeshore Estates Mobile Home Park in Mitchell on Monday.

A nearby lake flooded the park and with nowhere to go the water is sitting in the park. 

Some residents have returned and some continued to stay but the power has been shut off for safety reasons.

“Luckily I work for a good guy, he gave me a generator and we got power and food, we’re ok,” said resident Stosh Growbowski.

The Mitchell fire chief said they hope to get the power back on soon. But, it all depends on how fast they can pump the water out.
