St. Tammany Parish prepares for a storm

ST. TAMMANY PARISH, La – When storms come out of the tropics, the sand comes out in St. Tammany Parish.

Then parish people like Nancy Tedesco come out to a do-it-yourself mountain of six self serve sand piles for making sandbags.

From Slidell to Covington.

With Mandeville, Pearl River and Lacombe also on the list.

The sand service in St. Tammany is open from sunrise from to sunset.

WGNO’s Bill Wood says you’re welcome to take home up to fifteen sand-filled sandbags to protect you and your family.

The sand and the bags are free. If the shovel they provide is being used when you show up, you may want to bring your own, shovel.

Definitely your own muscle power.

And enough time to fill up your need from the sands of these times.
