Flooding shut down parts of the Kennedy, Edens and Eisenhower expressways this morning, doubling and even tripling commute times for some and opening the roads for many Chicago commuters. For this rainy-day edition of the show, Afternoon Shift asks whether the area is equipped to handle the weather. John Kiefner, a farmer in Will County, says what the rains mean for his 500 acres of corn, soybeans and hay. Doug Farr, president and CEO of Farr Associates Architecture and Urban Design, explains how the region’s built environment often exacerbates flooding conditions.
