Sandbagging efforts underway in Lamont

Posted:

LAMONT (KWWL)-- Heavy rain, and a lot of it in just a matter of hours has prompted people in Lamont to sandbag.

Since 3 a.m. Friday, people have been gathering at the city fire station to fill sandbags. Our crew on the scene says water has taken over the streets in many areas. You are urged to use extreme caution when traveling through town.

Buchanan County Emergency Management Coordinator says volunteers are needed to help sandbag, but only if you live in town.
