Illinois Weather Trivia for September 6th

9/6/1996
A thunderstorm produced very heavy rain in western and southern parts of Quincy. Local storm sewers were pushed to capacity, causing a discharge valve to automatically open to handle the overflow. This forced raw sewage into Curtis Creek, killing over 14,000 fish.
