    Sandbags are being given out for free in San Anselmo on Tuesday. That's because there is a big storm ahead. Monte Francis reports. (Published Tuesday, Nov 27, 2012)

    The Bay Area is about to get slammed by a slew of storms.

    Tuesday should be partly cloudy, but there is rain and wind expected daily from Wednesday through Sunday.

    Some areas will be hit harder than others.

    In San Anselmo, creeks and rivers are at risk of flooding. So, the city is handing out free sandbags and sand so residents can prepare for the wet weather. They remember the devastaing flood in 2005, and a smaller one in 2008. And so, the city wants to prevent downtown businesses from being submerged in water, like in years past.

    Some residents, like Maynard Brusman, are taking it in stride.

    "Anny place has problems," he told NBC Bay Area. "The rain is great. But you have to prepare for it."
