The call for sandbaggers at Portage Des Sioux had been answered.

St. Charles County officials say no additional volunteers are needed. KTRS's Michael Golde was at the scene earlier today and said that within an hour of the request for help on Monday morning, the number of sandbaggers nearly doubled.

Officials say the situation could change, it is unknown how long work on the sandbagging will continue.

While tornado cleanup continues in some parts of the St. Louis metro area, sandbagging is underway in other parts.   The Great River Road is closed between Alton and Graffton because it's under water.  

Water surrounds the Con Agra plant off Highway 100 in Alton and the Alton Belle Casino has closed for the first time because of flooding along the Mississippi.  The river is expected to crest in Alton on Tuesday at 36 feet -- that's within a foot of the historic flood of 1973.

Alton isn't the only community affected by high rivers.  The National Weather Service says the river should crest today 11 feet above flood stage at Grafton.  

MoDOT has closed Highway 94 between West Alton and Highway 67 in northern St. Charles County.  The highway is also closed between Augusta, Mo. and Defiance, Mo. in St. Charles County.

Centaur Road is closed behind Spirit of St. Louis Airport at Chesterfield Valley due to the rising Missouri River.

Highway 67 is closed in Herculaneum due to flooding.

   With rains on the way and levees around the soccer fields already pushed to the brink, the St. Louis Youth Soccer Association has canceled this year's Lou Fusz Soccer Club Midwest Cup. 

Floodwater continues to threaten the area around Newtown and Highway 370 in St. Charles. The water is near the top of an agriculture levee next to the St. Louis Youth Soccer Association (SLYSA) fields.  '

   Instead of getting ready to hit the fields, youth soccer players and coaches have been working alongside the National Guard, the Army Corps of Engineers and St. Charles firefighters to reinforce more than a mile-long stretch of a levee near the field.

   St. Charles Fire Chief Rick Daly says keeping the wall intact is about a lot more than protecting the soccer field. "If the levee fails here," he said, "it can potentially compromise areas in both the city and the county, and we don’t want that to happen."

In Clarksville, Missouri--which is about 75 miles northwest of St. Louis--volunteers are still needed to help with fill sandbags.

The town is currently experiencing minor flooding, but that is expected to be upgraded to major flooding by Friday night. The United Way and AmeriCorps are coordinating the volunteers and anyone 13 and older can sign up to help on the United Way's website. Volunteers between 13 and 18 years old need a guardian to sign up.

Officials say hundreds of volunteers are needed to save a historic portion of the Mississippi River town.

Volunteers can sign up by clicking here.
