The City of Tallahassee is closely monitoring the changing weather conditions in the Gulf of Mexico. The largest threat to our area is heavy rainfall, which could cause localized flooding. To assist citizens with preparing for heavy rainfall and potential flooding, the following Betton Hills sandbag location will be open on Friday, May 25:
- Winthrop Park 1601 Mitchell Avenue
Sandbags are limited to 25 bags per household. Citizens need to bring shovels to fill bags themselves. Locations will not be staffed, but crews will monitor and provide additional sand and bags as needed. The sites will be open until the storm threat has passed and it is determined there is no longer a need.
Citizens should also download the free DigiTally app now. Through the app, you can easily report issues such as downed trees and power outages. Outages can also be reported via Talgov.com and the City’s e+ Mobile app. The outage reporting page on Talgov.com, DigiTally and e+ Mobile features a map that shows reported outages. City utility customers can also call 891-4968 to report power outages; call wait times will be longer during major events.
