Emergency Shelters

Shelter Tips

  • Not all shelters will open for every situation! Which shelters are opened will depend on the size and timing of a storm.
  • Check this site for updates before finalizing your plans to make sure you only go to a shelter that is open.
  • Do not assume that a shelter you used in the past will be open this time.
  • Come prepared! Check out our list of items we recommend you bring to a shelter.
  • You can also view a map of the shelters that are opened during an event at our Know Your Zone site.
