Free Sandbags in Central Florida

Central Florida — With Florida in the cone of uncertainty and still a lot of unknowns as far as the strength of the oncoming storm, Central Florida counties are offering sandbags to residents.

Even if we escape flooding, they are great to have on hand during hurricane season. And you know what they say...plan for the worst and then hope for the best!
