Hundreds of volunteers turn out to fill sandbags in Hastings
Hundreds of volunteers turned out in Hastings on Saturday morning to fill sandbags, which will be used to protect homes in east Hastings from rising floodwaters.
In all, more than 20,000 sandbags were filled by volunteers. Some of the sandbags were put to use immediately at two homes in east Hastings. Long lines of volunteers passed the sandbags from the street to the homes.
The effort was coordinated by Bless Hastings and the City of Hastings.
