D.C. giving away sandbags
The District Department of Public Works is distributing free sandbags -- up to five per household -- to city residents as heavy rains push into the region.
The Capital Weather Gang says up to three inches of rain are possible through Thursday evening with some higher totals possible.
The sandbags, weighing between 40 and 50 pounds, are being distributed at the DPW site at New Jersey Avenue and K Street in Southeast Washington. Residents will need to load the sandbags, although officials said assistance may be available.
