Sand Distribution Locations
As a precautionary measure, counties are distributing sand for people to pick up in order to protect their homes from potential flooding.
In Harrison County, you can go to any of the work stations located in Woolmarket, D’iberville, Long Beach, Gulfport and Biloxi. You will have to bring a bag of your own.
Here is a list of locations in Jackson County: Central Division Roads Department in Vancleave, East Division Road Department in Moss Point, West Division Roads Department in Ocean Springs, Fort Lake Fire Department, Gulf Park/St. Andrews Fire Department and the Pascagoula Recycling Center.
The city of Gulfport is also doing its own separate sand distribution. Locations are the Orange Grove Community Center, the fire station on 42nd Avenue and the intersection of Hewes Avenue and Grover Street. Sand and Shovels will be provided at these locations.
