When a Levee Breaks

Posted By on Fri, Jun 27, 2008 at 5:38 PM

We’re back at it sandbagging in Hull this morning. Last night, one of the nearby levees in Missouri broke. So this has a trickle down effect (no pun intended) on where people and resources are allocated. The whole ballgame here is coming down to what the rain is going to do in the next few days.

The Hull site at Western University is lightly supervised and there’s a whole new cast of volunteers. So we’re the old veterans showing the newbies how to set up five-person bagging teams, etc…Go Yats.

The level of organization and coordination here between state and local government is amazing. It’s also infuriating to see their level of competence and excellent planning/communication compared to our experiences back home. More specifics later. I have to go now that I’ve been promoted to Sandbag Technician II.
