Sandbag Day planned for the City of Socorro
The City of Socorro wants to make sure residents are prepared ahead of monsoon season.
Last September several homes and roads were damaged when heavy rain fell for hours. City officials have taken a proactive approach this year and bought a sandbag machine. They want to encourage residents to stock up early.
They're hosting a “Sandbag Day” Saturday, June 14, starting at 9 a.m. at the recycling center. The entire community is invited. The city will host sandbag days the second Saturday of every month.
