NEWVILLE, Wis. (AP) - Rock County officials say residents who need sand or sandbags should contact local officials.
Pars of the Rock River, Turtle Creek and Sugar River are at or near flood-stage levels. Sheriff's Deputy Barbara Tillman says some homes have water in the yard, some have a few inches in basements and others have full basements.
High school students, fire departments, inmate crews and other volunteers have been filling thousands of sandbags and leaving them throughout the county so residents can easily access them.
The sheriff's department has posted phone numbers online that residents can call to get sand or sandbags. The participating locations are the townships of Beloit, Fulton, Harmony, Janesville, Milton and Rock.
