 Gadsden County Opens Sandbag Location in Anticipation of Heavy Rainfall  

GADSDEN COUNTY, FL – As Hurricane Dorian strengthens towards the gulf, Gadsden County will open a sandbag location for citizens ahead of anticipated heavy rainfall.

Sandbags will be available to the public on Thursday, August 29, 2019 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Post Plant Pit, 1090 Post Plant Road, Quincy, FL.

Citizens are limited to 15 sandbags per household and are required to bring their own shovels. For elderly and special needs citizens, Gadsden County Public Works employees will be on hand to provide assistance.

To prepare for hazardous weather, sandbags are a simple and effective way to prevent or reduce floodwater damage. Monitoring weather conditions, Gadsden County will set up additional sandbag locations as needed.

To help citizens get and stay prepared, Gadsden County Disaster Survival Guides are available at all three Gadsden County Public Libraries and online at www.GadsdenCountyFL.gov.

Citizens may also follow Gadsden County on Facebook at @GadsdenCountyBOCC and on Twitter at @GadsdenCtyBOCC and for live updates.
