Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Andrew Gasser encourages people in danger of being flooded by the rising Fox River to get sandbags in place.
The river is expected to crest on Sunday at three feet higher than now.
He says that free sand and bags are available behind Building No. 5.
“Follow the sandbag signs,” he advises.
“We went through 4,000 sandbags today.”
The sand and bags will be available throughout the night.
“Volunteers are urged to come help fill sandbags,”Gasser said.
