News from the Illinois Valley

For the first time this summer, the Illinois River is expected to be below flood stage in the Illinois Valley

Posted by wlpo on July 27, 2015

After about two straight months of flooding, the Illinois River is finally back below its flood stage in La Salle and Peru.

The river fell about three feet over the weekend and a daily Flood Warning was lifted Monday morning. The highest the Illinois got this summer in La Salle was 29 feet back on June 24th. That’s the 14th highest level ever according to records that date back over a hundred years.

The Illinois River at Henry is falling as well and is expected to go back below its flood stage in the next 24 hours.
