Flood warning issued for the Illinois River through La Salle and Peru

Posted by wlpo on May 12, 2016

Drive over the Illinois River in Peru and you’ll see the all too familiar scene of water spilling into fields along Route 251.

The stream rose above its 20 foot flood stage Thursday morning after heavy rain Wednesday night. The river is expected to crest at a foot above flood stage Friday morning before slowly falling back below its banks by Sunday.

The Illinois in Henry and Ottawa is also on the rise but is not expected to go over its banks.
