Pasco County Offering Sand Bags Ahead of Hurricane Eta

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. – Pasco County’s Department of Emergency Management is closely monitoring Hurricane Eta and is urging you to be prepared for the possibility of heavy rain and wind in the coming days.  Western Pasco County is under a Tropical Storm Watch until further notice, meaning tropical storm-force winds are possible in the next 48 hours.  Please store and secure loose items around your home and yard.

Pasco County now has four, self-serve sandbag stations open 24 hours to help protect your property from potential flooding.  Sand and bags are available at the following locations:

*Note: Sandbag locations are open 24 hours to Pasco County residents; however, sand will only be restocked between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.  You should bring a shovel and be prepared to fill your own sandbags. Learn how to use sandbags effectively in this brief video:

Pasco County reminds you to double-check your Disaster Kit, and make sure you know your evacuation zone, which you can find in the Pasco County Disaster Preparedness Guide:
