A major storm is set to dump a lot of rain on the Southland today and tomorrow. The chance of rain in Burbank is 100 percent on Tuesday. The weather watchers say we could get 1 to 2 inches of rain. That kind of heavy rainfall could produce flash flooding. So the City of Burbank is offering free sandbags to residents and local businesses.
The Public Works Department is providing the sandbags. Initially, residents can get up to 25 sandbags — but can request more if needed. Pickup is at the Public Works Field Services Yard 124 South Lake Street Monday – Friday, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Proof of residency or business in Burbank is required. A Burbank Water and Power utility bill or driver’s license will do. For more information contact Field Services Yard at (818) 238-3800
