St. Johns County will give free sandbags to residents


St. Johns County Board of Commissioners announced June 6 that St. Johns County would provide free sandbags throughout the county for free ahead of Tropical Storm Colin.

Both sand and bags will be provided at no cost, but residents must provide their own transportation and shovels and will be responsible for filling the bags themselves. The county will supply no more than 50 bags per person. The sandbags will be available from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. June 6-8.
