Red Cross Media Alerts
  Shelter information not yet available
Please help us get out the word, as we are already getting calls from people wanting to know where the Red Cross will locate, open, and operate shelters.

The Red Cross only opens evacuation shelters for those fleeing hurricane zones. We do not open shelters in anticipation of tornado warnings or other severe weather.

We are identifying which shelters would be available and on stand-by should there be significant damage and need related to today's weather. If and when we do open shelters, it will be after the storm has passed, and it will be as close as safely possible to those affected for their own convenience. We will announce them on this page.
