SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego County is gearing up to give out free sandbags ahead of expected heavy rains.

Am atmospheric river is set to bring downpours to the county Monday through Thursday, the National Weather Service says.

County officials say it’s important to be prepared because topsoil, mud, plant material, and debris can clog culverts and storm drains and damage roadways.
