The island that’s home to Georgia’s largest public beach is setting aside $300,000 to buy sandbags the next time a hurricane or other big storm threatens the coast. WTOC-TV reports the city council on Tybee Island approved keeping the money in reserve until an emergency is declared. Then city officials can order sand to be trucked in within 24 hours.
