Ahead of this weekend's storm, city and county governments in our area are opening up sandbag stations to help people protect their property against possible floods.

People are able to fill 20 sand bags for free at these locations. All they have to bring is a shovel.

It is recommended you only fill your sand bag half full. Over-filling the bags can cause them to become too rigid and not be malleable to move and fill in all the gaps to keep the water out.
