GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. — Gadsden County will open a sandbag location as Hurricane Dorian strengthens.

A sandbag location will open for the community ahead of anticipated heavy rainfall on Thursday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Post Plant Pit, on 1090 Post Plant Road, Quincy, FL.

People are limited to 15 sandbags per household and are required to bring their own shovels. For elderly and special needs citizens, Gadsden County Public Works employees will be on hand to provide assistance.

To prepare for hazardous weather, sandbags are a simple and effective way to prevent or reduce floodwater damage. Monitoring weather conditions, Gadsden County will set up additional sandbag locations as needed.

To help citizens get and stay prepared, Gadsden County Disaster Survival Guides are available at all three Gadsden County Public Libraries and online at
