Volunteers Fill Sandbags In West Point Just In Case

Volunteers Fill Sandbags In  West Point Just In Case

Dozens of volunteers turned up at the West Point fire station Thursday morning to help fill sandbags.  City Administrator Tom Goulette tells  the  KTIC Newsroom there is no serious flooding at this point, but they want to be ready in the event more water comes our way from Wisner down the Elkhorn River.

 

 

 

Goulette says there are some areas of minor lowland flooding  but overall the pumps have done a good job.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The sandbags will be placed at various spots along the levee and maybe near the power station.

 

 

 

The Cuming County dispatch office asks people not to call their emergency number or non-emergency number to ask about road conditions.  They say it takes time away from actual emergencies.
