School issues call for sandbaggers

Windom Area Schools has sent out a mass message to families of students, asking for help to fill sandbags at the Windom Arena.

Numerous homes in the community are at imminent risk of flooding in light of the forecasted crest of the river, projected at 26 feet, which would be over a foot higher than the record 1969 flood’s crest.

The message from the district states, “Sandbagging help is needed at the Arena, beginning right now. If you or your child(ren) can help, please go there. Many hands are needed so people can take breaks, trade jobs and make this giant task more manageable.”
