Volunteers needed to help move sandbags to southeast Iowa

Volunteers are needed immediately to help the University of Iowa move 250,000 unused sandbags to other towns in southeast Iowa stricken by floods. The sandbags will be transported by Iowa National Guard trucks and volunteers are needed to load the bags onto the trucks. Volunteers should report to the corner of Burlington and Madison Streets, and will likely be needed into the evening.
