City Flicks Switch on Sandbagging Machines

City Flicks Switch on Sandbagging Machines

The City of Winnipeg is preparing 80,000 sandbags this week for the expected crest of the Red River at the beginning of April. With two sandbagging machines now in operation at two separate yards, workers are filling about 500 sandbags every 15 minutes.

Last week, the city said about 25 properties would be protected, but that number is down to only 20 as of Monday.
