D.C. offers residents free sandbags
The District Department of Public Works will offer free sandbags to D.C. residents Tuesday night as a cold front with the potential to cause flooding moves through the area. The region is under a flash flood watch through Wednesday afternoon.
The sandbags will be available between 8 and midnight tonight and 7 a.m. and noon Wednesday. Residents are eligible for up to four sandbags per household. The sandbags can be picked up at DPW's New Jersey Avenue and K Street site in Southeast Washington. (The entrance is on New Jersey at I Street).
Officials say each bag weighs between 40 and 50 pounds and residents will be responsible for loading them into their vehicles.
