OPP officers will be lending a hand to Lakeshore residents.

Auxiliary members will be at several locations Wednesday afternoon to help residents fill and load sandbags into their vehicles.

The town is encouraging anyone who lives along the waterfront to put sandbags in place, but recognizes that can be challenging for some including the elderly.

Residents requiring assistance should go to Lions Park, the former Belle River Arena, the Lakeshore Public Works yard or the Golfview Dr. Parkette between 5pm and 9pm.

Sandbags must first be picked up at the Atlas Tube Centre or Lions Park.
