14When To Hit The Road
If an evacuation order has been issued, leave your home and hit the road. Don’t wait too long before you evacuate, as this could prove fatal. Has an evacuation order not yet been issued and you’re not sure whether you should evacuate or not? Evacuate if: You live in a low-lying
area, or an area that suffers from floods since hurricanes often result in heightened tides; if you live in a mobile home or a home that has poor structural stability; or if you live on a boat.
Make plans to stay with your friends or neighbors. If you don’t have friends or neighbors you can stay with, call a local emergency management office and let them know about your situation as soon as possible.
