Be prepared: Free sandbags available
With extremely heavy rains expected Friday and Saturday, the city reminds residents that free sandbags are available at two locations in the city.
Sandbag stations are at the City Yard, 17300 Mt. Hermann St., and at the Fountain Valley Sports Park, 16400 Brookhurst St. The Sports Park station is located behind the tennis courts next to David L. Baker Golf Course.
Sand and sandbags are available at the sites. Residents should bring a shovel. Filling sandbags is a two-person job. One should hold the bag open while the other fills the bag. It is recommended that bags be filled half way.
Residents are asked to take only what they need and be respectful of their neighbors.
