Chicago weather: Flooding in homes and on roads in McHenry County

Monday, March 11, 2013

Rain and melting snow were causing flooding in some of Chicago's northwest suburbs Monday.

The high water is making it difficult to get around in McHenry County. Harmony Road south of Marengo was closed early Monday.

Some homes also had flooded.

"We got caught with the ice and snow outside and a couple culverts got plugged out by the road, and we just had a river flow through the property. And it got higher than the window wells and started pouring in the basement," homeowner Randy Illg said.

McHenry officials said there had not been any evacuations due to the flooding.
