Sandbag distribution is underway in Mercedes.

Hidalgo County Precinct 1 Commissioner David Fuentes says the county doesn't handle shelters, but they're meeting with individual cities that do handle them right now. He says cities are working with the American Red Cross to assess the need and determine what resources they can use.

They're handing out 6 sandbags per family. On Thursday they gave out 1,500, and within a couple hours here they gave out 2,500 bags.
