Residents in parts of Elgin are being told to prepare for flooding and possible evacuations.

Several creeks - in particular Poplar Creek - are running as much as two and a half feet above normal levels. And there's more rain in the forecast.

Elgin's Office of Emergency Management says people living in flood-prone parts of the city should be prepared to find emergency shelter.
