City of Hollywood is helping residents and business owners prepare by handing out free sandbags from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The brunt of Tropical Storm Isaac is expected to bring heavy rains and gusty winds to South Florida Sunday.
Several South Florida cities are giving out free sandbags for residents.
Officials in Miami-Dade will be distributing complimentary sandbags beginning at 2 p.m. until supplies last, at the following locations:
Residents are allowed five free sandbags but must show proof of residency.
Sandbags were also being given out while supplies lasted at 13740 SW 264th Street and 28350 SW 136th Place - Country Star/Cambridge Estates, Naranja.
In Homestead, Parks and Recreation Director Dennis Maytan Jr. said it saddened him to have to turn people away because he knows everyone needs help, but only city taxpayers are allowed the sandbags.
So far, at the Harris Field location nearly 500 people have sat in a line of about 30 or 40 cars at a time to get their bags.
The sandbag give-away only lasts until 5 p.m. or until supplies last.
Maytan says the crowds are a bit smaller at the Roby George Park Location.
City of Hollywood is also helping residents and business owners prepare by handing out free sandbags from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
People who live or work in low-lying areas prone to flooding can stop by the City of Hollywood Public Works Facility at 1600 S. Park Road and the Driftwood Community Center at 3000 N 69th Avenue.
Each person can pick up eight free sandbags. Proof of residency or business is required.
In Hallandale Beach, the city will be distributing free sandbags to residents and property owners from 8 a.m. to noon on Sunday at Hallandale Beach Public Works at 630 Northwest 2nd Street.
