Major flooding continues on segments of the Des Plaines and Fox Rivers

Major flooding continues on segments of the Des Plaines and Fox
Rivers. The Rivers will continue to rise briefly at Gurnee and
Montgomery, but slowly fall at other locations. Additional rains
later this week could prolong flooding, but current forecasts
have the Des Plaines River falling below flood by next weekend. 

Rivers in flood are depicted in green on the highlighted map.
