Plymouth Mayor Mark Senter is once again asking for volunteers on Thursday to help fill sandbags to protect property in the city.
Senter said late Wednesday that volunteers should mobilize no earlier than 9 a.m. behind Hoffman Brothers Auto Parts, 211 E. Garro St., and the City of Plymouth Street Dept. garage, 2124 Western Ave.
The mayor is asking that residents bring their own shovels.
The National Weather Service predicted late Wednesday that the Yellow River will crest at 18 feet at about 1 p.m. Thursday — nearly a foot higher than the record-level crest of 17.1 feet set in 1954.
