In the event that the public needs sandbags due to flooding this weekend, sand and sandbags are available at the Kosciusko County Highway Department, 2936 E. Old Rd. 30, Warsaw.
The heavy snowfall from earlier in the week is being followed by rain in the forecast for this evening and Saturday. With temperatures also expected to remain above freezing at least through Monday, snow will continue to melt, which could result in localized flooding.
Kosciusko County Emergency Management Director Ed Rock said the sand and sandbags are available, but residents will need to bring their own shovels and bag their own sand.
