Flood Update 11 July 2011

Hofstetter says attention is now turning to the levee breach in Wakenda, where crews are still evaluating their options for re-routing the water.

Work has been successful over the weekend on a secondary levee that broke last week near Norborne.

The sandbagging effort on Highway 65 is also going well as they attempt to keep the roadway open as long as possible.

Donations of water, energy drinks, ice, snacks, sunscreen and other items are still needed for those working to sandbag on the levees.

According to Hofstetter the number of donations has been very strong, and that needs to continue because the sandbagging will be underway for quite some time.

Donations can be taken to the Carrollton Fire Department from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. daily.
