SALEM, OR (KPTV) -

The city of Salem is setting up sandbag sites for anyone concerned about flooding as the snow melts.

City workers said sandbags are always available at the public works operations center, but due to last week's snow storms, 14 additional sites are now open.

Widespread flooding is not expected at this point, according to city staff, but they wanted to offer sandbags to the community as a precaution, especially for people living in flood-prone areas.

For a complete list of all the sandbag-filling sites, follow this link: Salem sandbag locations.
