Steuben And LaGrange Counties Plan To Continue Offering FREE Sandbags
Wednesday, March 1, 2023

NORTHEAST INDIANA - Steuben and LaGrange counties are offering some help for area residents who are dealing with flooding following heavy rain earlier this week.

Steuben County Emergency Management (EMA) says the levels of Steuben County lakes, rivers and streams are rising amid the rainfall. They say as those levels continue to rise, the EMA office and the Steuben County Highway Department is offering a free sandbag filling site.

The Steuben County site is located at 1900 North County Road 200 West in Angola. Anyone with questions is asked to call Steuben County EMA at 260-668-1000, ext. 3400.

Officials in LaGrange County say they are also offering sand and bags at no cost at 710 North Walnut Street in LaGrange. Those with questions are asked to call LaGrange County Emergency Management at (260) 499-6431 or LaGrange County Highway Department at (260) 499-6353.

Both locations say the sand and sandbags will be available at no cost to the public.

Those coming to get the FREE sand and sandbags will need to haul the bags and bring their own shovel.
