If That Storm Actually Arrives...

Our reporting is free for everyone, but it’s not free to make.
LAist only exists with reader support. If you're in a position to give, your donation powers our reporters and keeps us independent.

Until 2 p.m. today, residents of Los Angeles can receive free sandbags, courtesy of Department of Public Works Bureau of Street Services. You're going to have fill the sandbags yourself with the shovels provided on site and you get up to 25 bags if you so desire.There are about 35 locations in the city (includes fire stations), so you shouldn't have to go that far.

To report storm-related emergencies such as trees down, landslides, potholes, and road erosion, call 3-1-1, the City’s toll-free, 24-hour, operator information and access hotline.
