It has been a few weeks since river flooding began across the Heart of Illinois, and river levels will remain high for at least the next week or so.
Flood Warnings remain in effect for the Illinois River until further notice.
Many areas saw a crest in the moderate or major flood stage last week, and most locations are still within the moderate flood stage right now.
However, expect a steady drop in our river levels over the next week. Some locations may even reach the minor flood stage by the middle of next week.
