On Wednesday, sand bags will be available for residents in Lower St. Martin Parish.

The sandbags will be available seven days a week from 8:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m. until further notice at the Stephensville Park on Hwy., 70. 

St. Martin Parish government is making sandbags available to residents following a state of emergency declaration this week. This state of emergency is due to the threat of flooding.

That threat is along the Mississippi and Atchafalaya Rivers and along with the related bodies of water that have the potential to cause flooding and subsequent damage due to flooding in lower St. Martin Parish.
