Petaluma residents are being encouraged to pick up sandbags as stormy weather hits the region this week.
Sacks and sand for sandbags are available for pickup at the northern end of Hopper Street, near Shamrock Materials, in the western part of town, city officials said. Residents and business owners can help themselves to the sandbags as needed to protect their buildings from flooding.
Alerts and emergency notifications will be posted on the city's website, www.cityofpetaluma.net, twice a day during the stormy weather, according to the city.
