Tropical Storm Emily is expected to make landfall possibly along the Pinellas County coast this afternoon. A tropical storm warning and flood watch is in effect.

Rainfall of 2-4 inches is forecast and possibly up to 8 inches in isolated areas. Two municipalities have announced the availability of sandbags as of Monday morning: Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park.

Tarpon Springs has activated its three sandbag locations: Splash Park, Live Oak Street; Sponge Docks, west end of Roosevelt Boulevard; and Dorsett Park, East Harrison Street.

Pinellas Park announced that city residents can get up to 10 sandbags until 6 p.m. at the Public Works Building, 6151 78th Ave. N. Residents must show a water bill or valid driverís license showing they are a resident of Pinellas Park. For more information, call 727-369-5617.

Pinellas County opened its Citizen Information Center for questions or reports of storm-related issues. Call 727-464-4333.

Emergency Management has made sandbags available for citizens in unincorporated areas. Sandbags are available at John Chesnut Park, 2200 East Lake Road in Palm Harbor; John S. Taylor Park, 1100 Eighth Ave. SW in Largo; and Lealman Community Park, 3800 55th Ave. N. in St. Petersburg.

Coastal and barrier island residents are advised to prepare for potential localized flooding and higher than usual tides. Residents in all areas of the county are advised to take extra precautions today and avoid driving through flooded streets.

Revised to add information from Pinellas County.
