With another atmospheric river expected to bring heavy rain to our area, we have opened two self-serve sandbag stations. 

Free sandbags are available for Watsonville residents at Fire Station 1 (115 2nd St.) and the lot across the Buddhist Temple (423 Bridge St.). The lot across the Buddhist Temple will have pre-filled bags until supplies last. Ensure that your sandbags are properly stacked.
