Where To Get Sandbags In St. Pete

With Hurricane season upon us and the NOAA predicting a very active Hurricane Season, it’s important to be prepared. In St. Pete residents can get up to 10 sandbags per household. Some locations are self-service and other locations are full-service. To get sandbags you'll need to provide a driver's license or proof of residence. Not to scare you but the NOAA is forecasting between 17 and 25 named storms. 8 to 13 hurricanes with 4 to 7 of those being major hurricanes (Cat 3 and up) this year. One of the major driving forces to their prediction is the water temperature. The water is already is the 80's which normally doesn't happen until July or August. So the water is going to get warmer and that's not a go thing.
