Illinois River rises close to flood stage

Posted by wlpo on August 22, 2016

With all the rain last week, you may be wondering if the Illinois River is going to flood.

A Flood Advisory is in effect for the river at the La Salle and Ottawa locations. The good news is that the river in both spots crested Monday just below flood stage.

The Illinois at La Salle is headed down after going up three feet over the weekend and rising 7 feet since Tuesday. The river in Ottawa slowly rose about a foot last week.
