ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The city of St. Petersburg is handing out sand bags to residents concerned about flooding from Tropical Storm Andrea.

The sand bags will be distributed from noon to 8 p.m. Thursday at two locations in St. Petersburg.

Officials say 20 bags per vehicle are allowed. Residents who have city-issued bags from previous storms are encouraged to bring them for refilling.

Sand bags will be given to people who have identification verifying city residency. Officials say a Florida driver’s license is preferred.

The locations for sand bag distribution are Northeast Park, 875 62nd Ave. NE and Frank W. Pierce Center/Bartlett Park, 2000 Seventh St. S.
