    A wet weekend brought flooding to parts of the Chicago area and Illinois, closing roads and threatening area rivers with rising water levels. 

    Some locations saw more than 5 inches of rain over the two days, with the highest totals reported LaSalle County. 

    The National Weather Service issued a Flash Flood Watch for several counties across the area, which remained in place through Monday morning. 

    The governor of Illinois activated the State Emergency Operations Center Monday, saying rivers were swelling with water in some Illinois communities, causing flooding.
