ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Ahead of the expected arrival of Tropical Storm Isaias on Tuesday, the City of Annapolis is giving out sandbags on Monday at Truxtun Park beginning at 10 a.m.

Giveaways will go on until supplies run out or 4 p.m., whichever comes first.

Residents and business owners picking up will need identification in order to get up to 10 sandbags, which they can then fill themselves from a sand pile.

Everyone must wear a face covering and social distance while picking up.

Right now city officials say there's no plan to open shelters or evacuate.

Isaias could produce up to sex inches of rain and wind gusts at times up to 60 mph.
