Sandbags; SWLA SE Texas
Let's review -
How to properly fill move and deploy a sandbag video which can weigh up to 70 lb each.
Sandbags typically are only available from our local government during times when the weather service has officially declared a severe weather warning and rainfall amounts predicate conditions for potential flooding.
No one delivers. (There’s a capital idea for the entrepreneurial minded.) Bring a water bill or something with your name and address on it.
The locations are not usually staffed or there may attendants. You need to count on bringing your own shovel/friends truck, trailer etc., to help load the bags. Small amounts can easily be moved via automobile in most cases.
CALCASIEU PARISH makes sand and bags available to parish residents 24/7 – only at the threat of severe weather warnings.

Orange, County Texas Sandbag Policy and Distribution
Residents can possibly expect to receive prefilled bags when available, but always go prepared to fill and load your own bags. Basic hours of operation are 7 AM until 3:30 PM with extended hours based on need. As always you must provide transportation of your bags.
At the discretion of the Orange County Engineer sandbags will be made available during high rainfall or flooding periods. There is a limit of 50 pre-filled sandbags per person subject to availability – and unfilled sandbags are unlimited per person. Bags will need to be filled on site, no empty bags can be taken from the site.
That’s all from the pdf on their website – why would anyone want to take empty sandbags? Might as well put down paper towels against the water.
