Get Your Free Sandbags Before the Next Deluge

With heavy rain forecast for tonight and tomorrow, and flooding possible (again), the DC Department of Public Works is offering free sand bags to District residents.

District residents may pick up sandbags (up to four per household) at its New Jersey Avenue and K Street, SE site (entrance on New Jersey at I Street, SE).   The sandbags will be available today between noon and midnight.

The sandbags weigh between 40 and 50 pounds, and residents will need to load them into their vehicles.   DPW will have employees and signage directing residents to the site entrance.

For more information, visit DPW's website.

I bet you just can't wait till hurricane season ramps up and the storms really start.
