Sandbags available in Tampa ahead of heavy rain

The City of Tampa is making sandbags available to residents in preparation for heavy rain that's expected over the next few days.

FOX 13 meteorologist Lindsay Milbourne said there's a potential for some flooding in certain areas, and it's prompting Tampa officials to set up three sandbags sites.

Starting on Sunday, sandbags will be available at three locations from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Bobby Hicks Pool - 4201 W. Mango Ave., Tampa

Barksdale Active Adult Center - 1801 N. Lincoln Ave., Tampa

Jackson Heights Community Center - 3310 E. Lake Ave., Tampa

Residents should bring a proof of address, which needs to be within Tampa city limits. A valid driver's license, utility bill, or electric bill will suffice.

There is a ten-bag limit on the sandbags.
