Illinois River Should Barley Stay Below Banks

Posted by wlpo on December 16, 2011

Driving over the Illinois River today you may notice the river is on the rise.

A Flood Advisory is in effect for the Illinois River around La Salle until Sunday afternoon. The latest stage is 18.6 feet, below the 20 foot flood stage. However the river’s expected to rise near 20 feet by tomorrow morning.

The Illinois River in Ottawa is also under a Flood Advisory but it’s expected to crest a couple feet below flood stage.
