SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (BCN) — San Francisco homes and businesses in areas prone to flooding should lift furniture and goods from the ground and place sandbags by entryways as Sunday’s predicted storm approaches, according to city officials.

Sandbags can be picked up at the Public Works operations yard at the Marin Street/Kansas Street gate. Residents and businesses should bring proof of address.
