Sandbags are available at the corner of Belle Vue and Mabry for residents who fear flooding from Frances. All folks need to bring is a shovel.
The city is aggressively monitoring Hurricane Frances and urges citizens to do the same.
Mayor John Marks says, "Continue to monitor [the] hurricane and expect the worst. We want to be prepared."
There are six locations in Leon County where residents can get sandbags:
- Eisenhower Pit off Tyson Road
- The Division of Operations on Miccosukee Road.
- U.S. 27 North landing near Lake Jackson
- Ranchero Road at Oak Ridge
- Tekesta Park
- Belle Vue Way
