Sandbags Available For Lafayette Residents
With more rain in the forecast for Sunday afternoon and into the evening hours, Lafayette City-Parish officials want you to know that sandbags are available if you need.
Residents can bag their own bags, during daylight hours, at these locations in the parish: 400 N Dugas Road, which is off University Ave. and at 1017 Fortune Road in Youngsville.
Officials ask that residents limit each household to 20 bags. And remember, you'll need to bring your own shovel to bag the sand.
If your home has flooded during recent storms or if you live in a flood zone it is always better to prepare before the storms arrive.
We'll continue to watch the weather today/this evening and pass along any updates you may need via social media and on-air.
