Sandbags Available from County

As creeks and rivers continue to run high in Sheridan County, officials are keeping sandbags available for those in need. County Commission Chairman Terry Cram said the situation was better Wednesday than a few days ago, but creeks in some areas are still near their crest.

He said sandbags are available at the road and bridge shop south of the Wyoming Girls School, at the end of Short Road. Fifty yards of sand and bags are also available at the county fairgrounds off Fifth Street. The commission chairman said people will need to fill their own bags. But, he said, the sand is available to city as well as county residents.

Earlier, there were reports of flooding along Goose Creek west of Sheridan and in the Ranchester area, where Wolf Creek Road was under water at one time.
