Take a ride along the Illinois River and you’ll notice it’s been rising.  There’s a flood warning for the Illinois River at La Salle, Ottawa and Morris.

The National Weather Service says the river was at least two feet over flood stage early Saturday morning.  Flooding is minor and not predicted to get worse.  They expect it to crest at 24.2 feet Monday morning.

A flood advisory also is in effect for the Illinois River at Ottawa.
