Hurricane Matthew preparation in Hendry County

Tuesday, Oct. 4, was a busy day for sure! Hurricane Matthew was still bearing down on the east coast as a Cat 4 storm with 140 mph winds. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS STORM. Take precautions now. Sandbagging Stations will be open in LaBelle at the Rodeo and in Clewiston at the Health Department (a location change) by noon Wednesday, Oct. 5. These are self-service stations so you will need to bring your own shovel.
