Sandbags moved to new location

Posted: Updated:

Pre-filled sandbags that had been available at Faith Bible Church have been moved to the old Whirlpool plant.

Crews spent the day moving them to free up congestion along Oak Hill road and the church parking lot.

Sandbags are now available on a self serve basis at Whirlpool at Rural King on St. Joseph Avenue, and Menards on north Green River Road.

"It's inspiring to see all the volunteers out here and the work that they have done. They have literally filled tens of thousands of sandbags with sand, some people can use it to protect their home. It's a small contribution that individuals can make but working together making a real difference," Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel says.

EMA officials are not calling for volunteers in Vanderburgh County, unless conditions worsen.
