CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Hurricane season is here, and city officials are taking preventive measures to prepare themselves and Coastal Bend residents.

The Corpus Christi Public Works Department is partnering with Naval Air Station-Corpus Christi military volunteers to distribute free, pre-filled sandbags, according to a release from the city of Corpus Christi.

The second event is on Saturday, June 17, from 8 a.m. to noon or until all bags are gone.

Residents can pick up sandbags at:

  • West Guth Park (9700 Up River Rd.)
  • The City Service Center on Civitan Drive (5352 Ayers St.)

Residents can take up to seven sandbags per vehicle. Drivers should have a clear area in the trunk or bed of their vehicle to store the sandbags, and must remain inside their cars while sandbags are being loaded.
