Do you need sandbags? Are they available in your county? Here's the information First Coast News has gathered:
Duval: No. City of Jacksonville Communications Director David De Camp said that offering sandbags is generally not an effective use of resources in such a large, urbanized county. "If we thought there was a levy issue or a seawall issue it would be different than using them in yards," DeCamp said.
Clay: Yes. You can fill sandbags for free. Just go to Fire Station 14 in Middleburg, Fire Station 20 in Green Cove Springs, and Fire Station 22 in Fleming Island.
St. Johns: No
Baker: Free sandbags are offered at City Yard in Macclenny. They have given out between 5,000 to 6,000 in the past two days. Sandbags are only given out during extreme weather. Limit is 25 per person.
Columbia: Sandbags are free at Public Works Center and the Lake City Public Works. 6,000 were given out on Tuesday. Limit is 25 per person and they are available year round.
Union: Free and available at the Union County Road Department, which is located across from the prison. People can take as many sandbags as they can carry, and are only available during extreme weather.
Bradford: Free at Starke City Hall and Lawtey City Hall. Limit is 20 sandbags per car, and are only available during extreme weather.
