To assist residents with property protection from potential heavy rain due to Tropical Storm Lorena, the City of Tucson Transportation Department will reopen its sandbag distribution site on Friday, September 20, 2019, at 2 p.m. in the east parking lot of Hi Corbett Field, 700 S. Randolph Way, at Reid Park. At this location, sand and sandbags will be provided. Residents should bring their own shovel and be prepared to fill their own sandbags. There is a limit of 10 bags per vehicle.
In the event that severe weather is forecasted in the region, City staff will mobilize to monitor dip crossings and washes. By monitoring radar from the National Weather Service in Tucson and the Pima County Regional Flood Control District ALERT System, staff may also begin barricading dip crossings in anticipation of incoming floodwater.
