There are currently no significant flooding occurring or in the
forecast for the NCRFC area. Heavy isolated rains occurred over
the DuPage River in Illinois which cause Bolingbrook to reach
Moderate flood category. The river has crested and should fall
below flood stage in the next 12 hours.
The Mississippi River remains at elevated levels along its entire
length within the NCRFC region. The river is at or near action
stage at many sites from Minnesota downstream through Iowa,

river levels will remain vulnerable to additional flooding if
rainfall totals or intensity in the next week become excessive.
