The Illinois River in La Salle is rising above flood stage today but people on Water Street don’t need to head for higher ground.

The river is expected to rise to 21 feet this afternoon and then slowly recede back below the 20 foot flood stage.  A Flood Warning is in effect.

A Flood Advisory continues for the Fox River at Dayton.  The river crested at nearly 14 feet Friday morning and has fallen back below the 12 foot flood stage.

The Illinois and Fox River’s in Ottawa are not expected to flood.
