SF Runs Out of Sandbags Ahead of Storm, But More Available Today
Ahead of the storm, San Francisco made 10 sandbags available to residents and businesses to prevent flooding from an atmospheric river hitting the city this week. However, the San Francisco Department of Public Works said Wednesday morning, January 4, that they unfortunately, ran out of sandbags.
Thankfully, San Francisco Public Works has announced that there’s sandbags once again at their operations yard.
“Come to the gate at Marin and Kansas streets. Limit 5 per address. We plan to stay open until 8 p.m. tonight, as long as we have sandbags on hand. We will provide updates as needed. (posted at 7;30 a.m. on Jan. 5, 2023.)
Bring proof of address. Please note that members of the public will need to load the sandbags into their vehicles on their own. Sandbags also are sold at many local hardware and home improvement stores.
