Following the rainfall, the Des Plaines River crested at a level of 10.46 feet on September 14th, marking the 6th largest flood in Gurnee’s history. The Gurnee community came together to aid flooding victims, with volunteers assisting in sandbagging, providing cleanup assistance, and the business community donating supplies and food to those in need.
