The National Weather Service in Sioux Falls has provided a forecast for the Des Moines River in Windom a crest of 23 feet sometime Monday or Tuesday. This would be similar to the flood of September 2010, and about 4 tenths of a foot lower than the July of 2018 flood.
The City of Windom will prepare for the flood by filling 25,000 sandbags. 15,000 of these bags will be reserved for protecting public infrastructure. We plan to start filling sandbags at 10AM Thursday and finish up starting at 10AM Friday.
Volunteers are needed!! If you would like to volunteer, come to the Arena parking lot and sign-in with the coordinator. Wear pants, gloves and closed toe shoes. If you have a shovel, you can bring one of those too.
Island Park and Mayflower Park will be closed until further notice. Barricades will be going up at the Island Park entrance this afternoon. Please stay out of the parks for your own safety!
More information will be coming as we get closer to the crest period.
