Sand now available

September 6, 2017 – Flagler County and the city of Palm Coast will have sand available at several areas throughout the county. Sandbags are available in some locations with orders expected to arrive within the next couple of days.        

Residents will need to bring their own shovels for filling bags – and bags at the present time – as the materials are being provided for self-service during daylight hours.       

“We are working diligently to prepare for Hurricane Irma, and part of that is doing what we can to help residents protect their property,” County Administrator Craig Coffey said. “Supplies are limited, so we ask that only those people who live in areas where flooding will most likely occur use the sand.”

Flagler County will provide sand and bags at the following three locations:

  • Fire Station 71, 89 E. County Road 2006, western Flagler County
  • Fire Station 41, 5593 N. Oceanshore Boulevard, in the Hammock.
  • Fire Station 92, at the Flagler Executive Airport, 201 Airport Road.

Those who have their own bags, can fill up to 20 bags with sand. When bags are available, residents will be limited to 10 bags.

Sand is also available through the city of Palm Coast and bags are expected to be delivered within the next couple of days at these locations:

  • Palm Coast Public Works Yard, 1 Wellfield Grade, off U.S. 1 just north of Palm Coast Parkway, Palm Coast.
  • Holland Park, 18 Florida Park Drive, Palm Coast
  • Indian Trails Sports Complex, 5455 Belle Terre Pkwy., Palm Coast
  • Seminole Woods Neighborhood Park, 350 Sesame Blvd., Palm Coast
