Metropolis, Ill., home of Superman, was engulfed by floodwaters as the Ohio River overflowed due to near-recordbreaking amounts of rain. Residents have been without running water since April 25, and have been filling sandbags since that time as well. According to an Illinois National Guard soldier, they had used more than 21,500,000 pounds of sand as of the morning of May 5. Local volunteers join the Guard in filling sandbags in an effort to hold back the rising waters.
