Campbell Prepares for Flooding, Limits Sandbags

If record flooding really does occur in the area, people on French Island are going to need a few sandbags.

Probably more than a few, says town administrator Jim Gitz. Right now, they can have 200.   He says, until some more federal and state assistance comes through, that limit will stay in place and homeowners will have to make arrangements privately for more.


Gitz says, the town is in emergency preparation mode right now getting together plans for worse-case scenarios of flooding in streets and sewer problems. He says there's never enough time to prepare for any emergency but the town's well ahead of any preparations that were made for flooding events in the past.
