Volunteers needed for sandbagging efforts in Kimmswick

Posted: Updated:

KIMMSWICK, Mo. (KMOV) -- Volunteers turned out Saturday to help fill sandbags in this town that sits next to the Mississippi River and has seen high waters during one of the wettest Junes on record.

The sandbags will fill gaps in the town's levee where roads enter Kimmswick. The sandbags are a precaution and the town remains open for business.

The Mississippi River is expected to crest at 39 1/2 feet Tuesday. The flood stage is 39 feet.
