Florida's hurricane shelters are for people who have no where else to go, who do not live in sound structures, and who are within the evacuation area.
You should take your emergency kit, medications, identification, blankets, and snacks with you. If you have special medical needs, you should go to a special needs shelter only. Animals are not permitted in the shelter unless they are service animals. You will not be allowed to leave until the "all clear" is given.
This information was correct on June 1, 2012. Ensure that shelters are open before you evacuate.
