Baker residents were able to use a self-serve sandbag location at the City Hall Municipal Complex on Groom Road on Aug. 22-23.

While Hurricanes Marco and Laura sideswiped the area, more tropical disturbances have formed.

If the floodwaters don't reach the sandbags and you want to keep them for future use, store them in a dark place; sunlight will damage them over time. If you want to keep the sandbags deployed, cover them with dark plastic to protect them from sunlight.
