Sand bags available

Sand bags are available for Huntington Beach residents as the rain continues.

The city's Corporate Yard, 17371 Gothard St., has sand and bags for Huntington Beach residents with proof of residency. Residents can show a photo ID or a current utility bill.

Residents can take up to 20 bags, which they must fill with their own shovel.

The yard is open 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, but may stay open later depending on the weather conditions. For hours call (714) 960-8861.

Elderly or disabled people can have bags delivered to their homes by the Huntington Beach Fire Department's Community Emergency Response Team, or CERT, volunteers. Residents must sign a waiver agreeing to not hold CERT volunteers responsible for any flooding that may happen.
