Sandbagging at Dakota Dunes

Tony Marx of Jefferson, unloads a pallet of sandbags onto a trailer, June 3, at the Gateway facility in North Sioux City, S.D. Marx, a local contractor, is working alongside National Guard members, inmates and volunteers producing up to 150,000 sandbags per day at the site. Officials estimate the Gateway facility and several other sites in the area are producing nearly 500,000 sandbags a day as the Missouri River continues to rise.
