Ahead of the potential tropical threat this upcoming weekend, the city of Denham Springs has made sand and sandbags available.
Residents can bring their own shovel to load the bags across from the fire station on Government Drive.
According to a Facebook post from the city, Denham Springs officials are asking all residents to prepare and secure homes, especially outside items that may float away or damage homes.
Residents are also encouraged to check ditches for debris, including leaves and cut grass.
Officials are also available for assistance by calling 225-665-8121.
