City Sandbag Preparations Underway

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The city is continuing to monitor Tropical Depression 14 as it is expected to move into the Gulf of Mexico in the next 24 hours. The city has protocols in place in the event the storm threatens our coastal region.

City crews have been working to fill sandbags which will be provided to the public free of charge if the need arises. Workers have already prepared 6,000 sandbags and will be ready to distribute on Monday morning if needed. Two locations for sandbag pickup will be announced if the storm intensifies.

The city will provide updated information on Tropical Depression 14 to the community as needed.
