AP: Senator Barack Obama plans on touring the Illinois community of Quincy to see flooded areas along the Mississippi River for himself. The Democratic presidential candidate is scheduled to visit the area Saturday afternoon to tour the region and help fill sandbags.

Quincy’s 1 of several communities that have been threatened by the rising river waters. Volunteers have been feverishly stacking sandbags around several businesses and the water treatment facility.

Obama and fellow Illinois Senator Dick Durbin earlier this week asked Governor Rod Blagojevich to preemptively declare some counties disaster areas before flooding next week’s expected flooding moves along the river. Blagojevich did that.
