The City of Palm Coast works with emergency management officials to set up sandbag locations ahead of potential storms or serious rain events. Sandbags are helpful in areas prone to flooding.
The use of sandbags is a simple but effective way to prevent or reduce flood water damage. Properly filled and placed sandbags can act as a barrier to divert moving water around, instead of through, buildings.
Sandbags, when properly filled and placed, will redirect storm and debris flows away from property improvements. Place the sandbags outside of the home and against the doors where water enters the home.
