Tucson city started helping residents prepare for the 2018 monsoon on Monday.
The city has opened up a site for residents to come and fill up sandbags to prepare for the monsoon.
The site is being held at the Hi Corbett Field parking lot. Residents can go there anytime they want to fill up their sandbags.
The sandbags will help prevent major flooding near homes and businesses.
The city is providing the bags at Reid Park, but a shovel should be brought by locals.
Chuck Purcell, a resident of Tucson, says he has been preparing his yard and all around his house before the storm comes. He claims that people should start preparing right now before it is too late.
The city advises people to trim their trees, thin them out and remove the mistletoe.
Everything should be out of the way before the monsoon starts.
Every Wednesday from 4 PM to 8 PM Tucson Transportation Department will give out free sandbags to people at the rodeo grounds.
However, people can only take up to 10 bags per person.
City workers will help carry the bags and load them up.
The address for Reid Park is 700 S. Randolph Way, Tucson, AZ 85716.
