Because Florida is vulnerable to thunderstorms, hurricanes, and other disastrous weather, the state has made it a point to educate Floridians on the proper preparedness and safety procedures to follow during a natural disaster. Information on these procedures as well as locations for shelters, evacuation routes and zones can be found on your local government websites, state websites, and at your nearest civic center. Visit FloridaDisaster website for more information from the Florida Division of Emergency Management.
