Sandbagging at Dakota Dunes

South Dakota Army National Guard Sgt. 1st Class Kenny Kayser, of the 153rd Forward Support Company out of Parkston, fills a sandbag from a dispenser attached to a dump truck, June 3, at the Gateway facility in North Sioux City, S.D. Kayser and other National Guard members are working alongside 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.
