SAN CARLOS PARK, Fla — If you live in the area of San Carlos Park, you can now pick up sand for sandbags.

Sand is now available at Station 51 of the San Carlos Park Fire District.

You must have your ID ready, and only ten sandbags will be available per household while supplies last.

Organizers suggest bringing your own bags if possible and be prepared to fill them up yourself. They also recommend people bring their own shovel and want to remind people not to block the firehouse.
