RGV Residents Prepping for Rain, Bagging Sandbags

Posted: Updated:

WESLACO – Sand-filled bags are being distributed across the Rio Grande Valley in preparation for heavy rains.

About 1,000 bags were filled in an hour alone in Weslaco as residents waited in line.

KRGV’s Sierra Pizarro spoke with resident Juan Ramos who says he’s not taking chances this time.

“We got devastated in June,” he explains. “It got a foot and a half of water. I just finished fixing it a couple weeks ago.”

As the threat of severe weather approaches, city and county crews continue to load sand at dozens of sites across the Valley to be picked up by residents
