The cleanup continued Tuesday in northwest suburban Des Plaines.Among the buildings still underwater was the landmark McDonald's museum on Lee Street. It's closed until further notice. The building is a re-creation of the first McDonald's that was on that site.

The river was gradually receding and expected to fall below flood stage by Wednesday morning.
