Buckets of rain fall across the Illinois Valley

Posted by wlpo on September 19, 2015

As predicted, it rained a lot Friday across the Illinois Valley.

According to a weather spotter in Princeton, 5.7 inches of rain fell from Friday morning thru the evening. Over 3 inches of rain was measured in La Salle with two inches falling in less than an hour. Just short of two inches of rain was measured at the WLPO studios in Oglesby.

The rain caused flash flooding in parts of La Salle and in Mendota where a stretch of Route 251 had to be closed. Friday’s storms did produce a tornado near Frankfort in Will County.

While no injuries have been reported, the twister caused roof and tree damage.
