ST. CHARLES COUNTY, Mo. – Residents in low-lying areas of St. Charles County are concerned about the rising rivers.

The water could top the Elm Point Levee, so volunteers came out Monday to help the St. Louis Youth Soccer Association protect the nearby soccer complex, and they have a machine that will help.

"We can get a lot more done with this machine than we can by hand. It does about one every five seconds," said Chief Rick Daly.

While the machine can do a good bit of the work, they're still asking for about 60 volunteers each day through Wednesday to help fill 33,000 sandbags.
