Rainfall Delays Illinois River From Falling Below Flood Stage

Posted by wlpo on April 24, 2013

Tuesday’s rain won’t rush the rivers back up but it will slow down the time it takes to go back below flood stage.

The Illinois River in La Salle is just under 31 feet this morning.  It’s actually expected to level out if not rise a little by tomorrow morning before it continues its slow fall back below flood stage.  The Illinois in La Salle is expected to still be five feet above flood stage by the end of the weekend.

In Ottawa, the Illinois River is about a foot and a half above flood stage.  It’s expected to rise about a half foot by tomorrow morning.  The Illinois in Ottawa should fall back below flood stage by Sunday night.
