Sandbags available in Bradford County

By

From Bradford County Emergency Management

Due to the large amount of local rainfall from Tropical Storm Debby, areas in the City of Starke and Bradford County are experiencing flooding concerns. This includes properties along Alligator Creek, N Water Street, areas of Griffis Loop, NE 14 Avenue off CR230, and US301 remains closed due to flood waters. The forecasts for Bradford County continue to include rainfall, potentially large amounts due to the storm system. 

Currently there are two sandbag stations set up – the first at Starke City Hall at 209 N Thompson Street in the city and the second next to the County Health Department on W Market Road off US301.  The City Hall location has an inmate work crew on site to assist with filling but residents needing sandbags should bring their own shovels just in case a location does not have a work team in place.  

There is no charge for the sandbags and locations are open to anyone in need.
