Palm Coast providing sandbags for Hurricane Irma preparations

Sand and sandbags have been made available at the locations listed below.

In preparation for Hurricane Irma, the city of Palm Coast is making sand and sandbags available for residents at several locations, according to a Palm Coast city government news release.

The bags quickly ran out — the city went through about 10,000 by the night of Sept. 5  — but the city still has sand and has encouraged residents to bring heavy duty garbage bags (or to  double-layer standard bags) to fill with sand.

Palm Coast sand stations are self-serve: Residents should bring their own shovels and be prepared to fill their own bags.

Self-service sand stations are available during daylight hours at:

  • Palm Coast Public Works Yard, 1 Wellfield Grade, off U.S. 1 just north of Palm Coast Parkway, Palm Coast.
  • Holland Park, 18 Florida Park Drive, Palm Coast
  • Indian Trails Sports Complex, 5455 Belle Terre Pkwy., Palm Coast
  • Seminole Woods Neighborhood Park, 350 Sesame Blvd., Palm Coast
