About EvacuationIf a hurricane evacuation is ordered, residents are encouraged to stay with family members or friends in an inland, non-evacuation area.
Hurricane Evacuation Centers will also be opened, but the Centers should only be considered as a last resort. Additionally, Emergency Bus Pick-Up Sites will be activated to provide public transportation to and from designated Hurricane Evacuation Centers.
If you need to evacuate to a shelter, it is important to bring:
- Drinking water
- Prescription and emergency medications (refrigeration is available for these items only)
- Bedding; pillows, blankets
- Personal hygiene items
- Infant and child care, such as formula, diapers, toys, etc.
- Extra clothing
- Cash (in case you are unable to access any immediately after the hurricane)
- Special items for family members who are elderly or disabled
- Comfort materials such as books, magazines, cards, etc.
