Ahead of projected rainfall of up to 15 inches today through Saturday, Santa Rosa County Public Works staff delivered loads of sand to four locations:
  • Pine Forest Rd. at Carroll Rd. in Milton
  • Tiger Point Park in Midway
  • Pace Fire Station on Pace Patriot Boulevard in Pace
  • Leisure St. and Citrus Dr. in Holley By The Sea in Navarre
However, the county is not providing sand bags.
A press release by the county stated that sandbags “are available at local hardware and home improvement stores at a cost of approximately 50 cents per bag.”
