As strong storms moves through Acadiana, sandbags are available to residents who may need that extra protection.

In Broussard, sandbags are available behind Broussard City Hall on 310 E. Main Street and in the Deer Meadow Subdivision on the corner of Deer Meadow Blvd. and Myette Point St.

These sandbag stations are self bagging and are open until the end of this storm.

Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG) Department of Public Works operates two sandbag stations for Lafayette Parish residents.

Residents wishing to sandbag their property may access sandbags at one of two locations:

· LCG Compost Facility, located at 400 Dugas Rd., off North University Ave. (permanent, regular sandbag site)

· South District sandbag site, located at 1017 Fortune Rd. in Youngsville (permanent, regular sandbag site)

These sites are “self-bagging” locations.
