ALGONQUIN, Ill. -- The Fox and Des Plaines rivers are rising again thanks to Thursday’s new rainfall -- and there's more to come.

The water level receded in Algonquin, but when the new storms reversed its course, people had to use their sandbags and pumps.

The river hit a new record high Thursday. More rain is expected today and tomorrow.
