    I intend to post information for people evacuating from Irma, or otherwise in need of information on this thread.

    In a situation like this everything changes. What is normal no longer applies. It is tough to think.

    I will be posting links and whatever I can find that I think may be helpful to any one currently being affected.

    As much as I love to joke around, please do not joke on this thread.

    If you have links and helpful information, please post that. Everything changes so fast. If you are posting about specific shelters, please call and verify availability and note that at the time of posting.

    Please keep in mind it may be helpful to forward some of this information to people you know of who are in the process of evacuating.

    Be safe, those affected. I've been hearing all kinds of terrible stories about the hurricane.

    If you're evacuating please do so wisely and with care. Take only what you need to get to a safe location. Most importantly do your best to stay calm.

    This link shows evacuation shelters on a map, so if someone is on the road they can see them relative to where they are.

    ArcGIS Web Application

    (Some of the other shelter pages list by county, but people on the road probably don't know what county they are in, and might pass up something nearby. This is really great, but it would be even more helpful if shelter maps included interstate hwy exit numbers -- in number order.)
