HARLINGEN, Texas — The City of Harlingen is making sandbags available to residents and businesses beginning at 8:00 a.m. today, June 25. Sandbags are available at the Public Works Facility located at 404 South 54th Street.
The bags are already filled so residents will simply have to show their ID verifying their Harlingen address. They will also need a water bill showing they have garbage service with the City. They will then drive through and City employees will load the bags for them. Residents will be allowed six bags and businesses 12.
The City’s Emergency Management Team will continue to monitor the weather conditions and if it becomes necessary, more sandbag distribution locations will be opened.
