With heavy rain expected to last throughout the week, and flooding a good possibility, why not grab a few sandbags to help protect your home? SF Weekly reports that "the city has once again announced that it will give away up to 10 sandbags...to any San Franciscan who deigns to show up at the Department of Public Works corporation yard at 2323 Cesar Chavez."

The Department of Public Works goes on to point out that both filled and unfilled sandbags are available, you cab grab a few extra sandbags "under special circumstances if approved by the Deputy Director of Operations," you need to have a valid ID with San Francisco residence, and you must load your bags.

Hours are from 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday - Friday.

If you're in desperate need of sandbagging during off hours, please call 311.
