Officials in Pennington County are preparing for the possibility of spring flooding.
Pennington County Sheriff Ray Kuznia says his department has sand bags ready and on pallets. He says he wants to be prepared in case the worst happens. Kuznia advises citizens to be prepared and not wait for the last minute to act.
Public officials plan on meeting Monday to discuss a strategic plan for possible flooding of the Thief and Red Lake Rivers.
Kuznia says volunteers interested in helping with flood efforts should contact County Emergency Management Director Eric Beitel.
