JEFFERSON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — If you're in Jefferson County be on the lookout for sandbags.

In preparation for the cyclone, Jefferson County has three sandbag locations that will be open all day Friday.

The sand was dumped at those sites Thursday evening.

The sandbags are only for people who live in Jefferson County.
