In preparation for rain and storms, free sandbags for residents in the city and county of San Diego will be available.

For city of San Diego residents, sandbags were previously distributed at fire stations. However, officials decided on a new distribution plan that they felt "will ensure that the sandbags are available on a regular schedule and in convenient locations."

According to the city, those presenting proof of residency can get up to 10 empty sandbags from centrally located recreation centers. Residents offering identification showing their home street address can pick-up bags between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m., Monday-Friday, and from 12 p.m. until 2 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.
