Need Advice

Ok, In Pinellas County FL, Very close to Tampa Bay, I am seriously debating with a few friends going and getting some sand in trash bags and doing a basic sandbagging of the house, During frances, the watere made it to the back porch, I'm thinking this will be worse, particularly the furtehr south it treks...

what's the best way to sandbag the place, and yes
if it looks like it's going south of me, I'm going to evac... though i just drove by the shelters near me, they're all closed....

links or thoughts would be MOST appriecated
