If you live in an evacuation zone, remember that an American Red Cross (public) hurricane evacuation shelter should be considered as a place of last resort to ride out a hurricane. Public shelters are ideal for people who have no other place to go in an emergency. American Red Cross shelters may be crowded, do not accept pets and are not designed for comfort.
