Storm-battered residents are casting a weary eye over the Fox River and Chain O' Lakes in Lake County, which will continue to rise until they crest Monday, while the Des Plaines River reached its peak in that county early Friday, said Rita Lee, a water resources engineer for the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. "The tributaries have crested and are starting to fall."
