Flash flooding impacts parts of Grundy and Livingston County

Posted by wlpo on August 29, 2016

The Illinois River is over its banks in La Salle and Peru.

A Flood Warning is in effect with the river more than a foot and a half above flood stage as of Monday morning. The good news is that the Illinois crested Monday morning and should fall back below flood stage by Tuesday afternoon.

The worst flooding right now is in Braceville in Grundy County and Odell in Livingston County. Three to six inches fell in a short time Sunday in Braceville and Odell leaving roads and yards flooded.
