Hauntings in Illinois and Missouri – Creepy Ghost Videos

Do you believe in ghosts? This past weekend I had a chance to see the new movie 'The Conjuring.' It's a haunted house/ghost movie in the vein of 'The Exorcist' or 'The Amityville Horror.' I enjoy watching these types of movies, but in real life I'm pretty skeptical about "ghost stories." Even so, there are some pretty creepy videos out there! Check out these five scary ghost videos that were shot in Illinois and Missouri.

Everyone Around Here Remembers the Levee Break on July 16, 1993

If you were around Quincy 20 years ago today, you probably know where you were when you heard the news that the levee in West Quincy failed to hold back the mighty Mississippi River. We all knew when it happened because the news and the river spread like wildfire.

Because of high waters on the river, this year's 4th of July fireworks display in Quincy has been moved to the Illinois Veterans Home. This is not the first time that such a move has taken place.
