DUTCHTOWN, MO (KFVS) -
Around 50 Missouri National Guard soldiers who deployed to the community of Dutchtown to help with sandbagging efforts have finished their duty.
Doyle Tarmer, who is coordinating the flood efforts in Dutchtown, says the people of Dutchtown are no longer in danger and at this point in time, they are safe.
They no longer need volunteers to help.
They thank the National Guard and all other volunteers for all they've done and credit them for their efforts.
"Yesterday was a little slow," Staff Sergeant Justin Bickings said on Tuesday. "Today was extremely productive."
Members of the 1140th Engineer Battalion spent Tuesday lining Highway 74 with concrete barriers and sandbags.
"Hopefully, by the evening, we will have more than 900 feet of barriers in place," Bickings said.
They will be focusing on the intersection of Hwy. 25 and Hwy. 74.
The Cape Girardeau County Sheriff's Office evacuated the Diversion Channel boat ramp Tuesday.
Residents in Allenville are also worried about flooding.
