Flooding Expected in Parts of Illinois, Iowa, Missouri


The winter storm that hammered the Midwest the past few days has all but disappeared off the weather maps, replaced instead with flood warnings.

In north-central, northwest and west-central Illinois and parts of Iowa and Missouri, flooding is expected on several major and minor rivers and their tributaries, according to the National Weather Service.

The Illinois River is forecast to flood in several spots after the excessive rain, ice and snow that fell in the past few days, the NWS said in a report on Thursday morning.

In Havana, the river was at 15.7 feet on Wednesday night, well above flood stage of 14 feet. It’s expected to stay at those levels at least through Saturday, the agency said.
