Flash Flood Effects Linger


The weather has dried up, but rounds of torrential rainfall dropped at least 1" to 3" of rainfall around the Stateline last night, though spots around Freeport and Stockton reported 4" to 7" or more for rainfall. Sections of Highway 20 near Freeport were closed because of flash flooding last night.

Flood warnings remain in effect for all of Ogle, Stephenson, Jo Daviess, and Carroll counties for flooded roads, low-lying areas, streams, and rivers. Do not drive into any flooded roadways. Turn around, don't drown!

The weather will quiet down for the remainder of the weekend. Slight chance for scattered showers Saturday evening, otherwise mainly dry.

Due to excessive rainfall this past week, flood warnings and advisories will remain in effect until later next week.  Click here to check on the flooding forecast for the Rock, Kishwaukee, and Pecatonica rivers.
