Illinois River On The Rise

Posted by wlpo on April 11, 2013

Steady rain this week means the Illinois River is going to rise out of its banks.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Warning for the Illinois River in La Salle from Friday morning thru Monday afternoon.  The river right was above 15.4 feet Thursday afternoon, well below the 20 foot flood stage.  However it’s expected to rise a couple feet above flood stage Friday.

Parking at Starved Rock could be affected.
