Volunteers Requested to Help Combat Manchester Flooding
Updated: Thursday, May 30 2013, 08:26 AM CDT
MANCHESTER (CBS 2/FOX 28) - City officials in Manchester issued a call for help to fill sandbags as the Maquoketa River surged from its banks early Thursday morning.
Much of the downtown area adjacent to the river was under several feet of water when the sun rose Thursday, this after heavy rains pounded the area Wednesday evening.
At one point Manchester and the surrounding area spent nearly 45 minutes under a tornado warning, but there was no significant damage from the storm that roared overhead. Nor, as of 8:30 a.m. Thursday morning, were there any reports of injuries.
City officials asked for volunteers to help fill sandbags at the city maintenance yard starting at 9:00 a.m. Thursday morning, hoping to keep the waters from flooding more of the downtown area.
That shop is located at 324 S. 3rd Street.
