Hurricane shelters

If your home is not in a safe place or not adequately hurricane proof, your best bet is to head to family and friends, or failing that, one of the hurricane shelters listed below.

Prior to the start of hurricane season make sure you familiarise yourself with your closest shelter and ensure you know the best route to get there. Prior to leaving your home ensure you pack the bare essentials, including important documents, such as your passport, any medications you take, as well as cash for post hurricane expenses.
