Lowland and agricultural land throughout the county also experienced flooding.

The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for Monday afternoon and evening throughout Will County, warning of "hail up to ping pong ball size" and possible flooding. Though the worst of the flooding is over, the weather service said, flooding is expected to continue throughout the night, especially near streams.

At that stage, water begins to flood the yards of homes, as well as submerge boat docks, along the Huron River and Ore Lake.

The river crested late Friday at 13.82 feet, its highest level since 1908, and the second-highest level ever recorded.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for portions of Maryland starting at 3 p.m. Tuesday and running until 1 a.m. Wednesday.

The Flood Warning already in place at the Rock River in Afton remains.
