  1. If there’s a chance you need to evacuate, register on our “Safe and Well” site on This tells loved ones you’re ok.
  1. We have opened several shelters in the area. You should bookmark this link to see all open Red Cross shelters.
  1. Packing for the shelter: Bring your medicines, food if you’re allergic or vegetarian, ID (proof of residence), extra clothes, sleeping bags, pillows and hygiene items
  1. Supplies: Bring supplies for elderly family members and children
