INDEPENDENCE, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- Emergency Managers in Buchanan County are getting ready for the threat of more heavy rain and flooding in the area.  Officials are urging people in flood-prone areas to prepare for additional flooding.
   Homeowners can fill sandbags at the Buchanan County Shop in Jesup at 831 Douglas Street and just north of the old railroad tracks at the old Fareway Building at 206 2nd Avenue SW in Independence.
   Officials remind residents not to use the sand at the Independence City Shop because it contains salt from winter use and could pose a skin danger.  Those in need of sandbags should bring shovels and gloves while filling the bags.
