Shipments of bags to fill with sand arrived in town on Wednesday.

"We’re just watching it closely and hope things will go down and settle down a little bit, and the water will start receding,” said director J.D. Kesler with Emergency Management. “It still has to go up a little bit before it comes back down due to all the rain north."

Please be aware if you are in need of a significant number of bags, you should contact
Vigo County Emergency Management directly at (812) 462-3217.

They will help you create an action plan.
