Yesterday Nunda Township Supervisor-Elect Lee Jennings sent out another robo-call seeking volunteers.
[Jennings identified this as Rawson Bridge Road near the Broken Oar. When he emailed me, he said the water was higher on Monday morning.]
People are needed for both heavy lifting and tying up the bags of sand.
Here is Jenning’s plea for help:
“Even though the rain has stopped, the Fox River continues to rise.
“Nunda Township still needs able bodied volunteers to help operate a sandbagging program to assist our residents affected by the flooding.
“We will not stop until the river crests and the flooding begins to subside.
“Please join us this weekend from 8:00 am until 9:00 pm Saturday and Sunday at the Nunda Township Highway Department located at 3518 Bay Rd. in Crystal Lake.
“Even a few hours of your time will help tremendously.
“If you are in need of sandbags or for more information, please contact the Nunda Highway Dept at 815-459-4410.
