The Burns area managed to head off possible flooding this last weekend, but they're keeping an eye on the weather. Rain is in the forecast, but so far the sandbagging is holding the levy. Burns City Manager, Don Munkers says more than 100 volunteers showed up on Friday to prevent the flooding. “It was absolutely great. The community really stepped up. It's been absolutely phenomenal. They worked real hard and deserve a great big atta boy!” The Red Cross set up a shelter for possible evacuees, but evacuations weren't necessary. So far, the sandbagging is holding, but volunteers are poised to jump in and help if more rain falls or more snow melts.
