The DC Department of Public Works announced that residents can pick up the sandbags at its New Jersey Avenue and K Street location, officials said in a news release.

Four sandbags per household will be given to anyone who shows up to pick them up.

Sandbags will be distributed between 8 p.m. and midnight tonight and will resume at 7 a.m. through noon tomorrow.
