Miami-Dade, Palm Beach, Broward and Monroe Counties advise people in living in evacuation zones to find a safe shelter during a storm or hurricane. For those who can’t access a safe place, the American Red Cross will provide shelters of last resort in Miami-Dade and Broward County. Monroe County shelters will only open in case of storms of category 1 or 2. Keep in mind that not all shelters will be open.
