According to the National Weather Service, the Kankakee River in LaPorte County at 9.3 feet was expected to crest at 13.1 feet Thursday.

The record is 13.8 feet.

Carl Netzer passed over the river on U.S 6 while heading to work Tuesday at Stillwell Farm Fertilizers about five miles east of LaPorte.

''I was surprised how high it was already,'' said Netzer, who raises corn and soybeans in the Kingsford Heights area.
