At first, PF&R promised that sandbags would be made available to anybody in the region who requested them. However, the City of Tigard and Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue was able to provide them with sandbags after they abandoned the original plan due to the limited nature of the water. Nobody has had to leave their houses because of this.
