Sophia Johnson, 6, talks to her mom, Kace Johnson, of Sarasota, Florida, after they finished filling ten sandbags with dirt provided by Sarasota County at the Newtown Estates Rec Center to prepare for Hurricane Irma. The Johnsons got the last ten sandbags Wednesday shortly after noon, before the county ran out of sandbags. The county had plenty of dirt, but people had to start bringing their own bags or containers. The county was expecting another delivery of sandbags on Thursday.
