Hernando Offers Limited Supply of Sand, Sandbags to Residents
Hernando County cautions residents to watch for flooding late Sunday (June 5) and early Monday (June 6).
HERNANDO COUNTY – Hernando County Emergency Management is monitoring the development of an area of low pressure off the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. This system is expected to move northeast across the eastern Gulf of Mexico, and bring excessive rainfall to Hernando County on Monday (June 6) and Tuesday (June 7).
The National Hurricane Center is forecasting a 60 percent chance of this system becoming a tropical depression over the next few days. Hernando County officials encourage residents who live in low lying areas to monitor the weather closely and to consider making preparations to protect their property. Beware of the potential for coastal flooding late Sunday (June 5) into early Monday.
If needed, sand and sandbags may be purchased at local home improvement stores. In addition, a limited supply will also be available to residents from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday (June 4) at two locations in Hernando County. Please bring your own shovel:
