Sandbag locations are opening up in several areas in Acadiana as heavy rains continue Tuesday. 

The Iberia Parish Government has opened sandbag locations in advance of any heavy rain in the area. 

Locations that have been opened are as follows:

  • B.O.M Fire Station
  • Grand Marais Fire Station
  • Coteau Fire Station
  • Rynella Fire Station
  • Delcambre City Barn
  • Loreauville Park 

Shovels will not be provided and residents should be prepared to fill their own sandbags. 

In St. Mary Parish, Baldwin officials say that residents will have access to sandbags as rains continue. Those in the town can get sandbags at the Maintenance Building located at City Hall on 800 Main Street. 

Sandbags are self-fill for all able-bodied individuals. For those with disabilities, bags can be filled for them. 

The list of sandbag locations will be updated as that information comes into KATC.
