Davenport Evans lawyers joined volunteers from across the Sioux Empire today filling sandbags for Sioux Falls flood relief.

Sioux Falls area residents are preparing for increased flood risks this weekend, due to rising river levels. The City of Sioux Falls has organized a sandbag-filling station at Sherman Park. The station is to the north of the Great Plains Zoo, off the corner of 13th Street and Kiwanis Avenue. Residents can obtain 25 empty bags per vehicle, free of charge. Volunteers may sign up to help fill sand bags from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, by calling the 2-1-1 Helpline Center.
