Flooding is no fun and can be downright dangerous. This is especially true for our beautiful state of Arizona, considering nearly 300 days a year are bright and sunny in the Sonoran desert.
As the scorching summer and monsoon season rages on, it’s important that homeowners are prepared and proactive when it comes to water damage and flooding prevention. Luckily, there are multiple locations across Tucson and southern Arizona that are offering sandbags to local residents in anticipation of monsoon storms that could cause flooding.
Check out this list of places you can go to get sandbags. Keep in mind that you should call ahead to confirm the location closest to you is still available.
