Free sandbag materials are now available at four Ward County locations and at Minot Public Works.
Volunteers are welcome to bring a shovel and fill bags to shore up low spots or window wells.
The primary Ward County sandbag location is north of Minot at the County Building off of highway 83.
The sand in Carpio is at the corner of County Road 6 and Main Street.
In Burlington, as you can see, a sand machine is available for use at the City Hall lot.
Those three locations will be open around the clock.
The site in Sawyer is on private property and will only be open at scheduled times.
The city of Minot has also made sandbags available at Minot Public Works between the hours of 8-4:30.
