Are there any recommended evacuation guidelines?
Keep a full tank of gas in your car. Make transportation arrangements if you do not own a car. Listen to a battery-powered radio and follow local evacuation instructions. Gather your family and go if you are instructed to evacuate immediately. Leave early enough to avoid being trapped by severe weather. Follow recommended evacuation routes. Be alert for washed-out roads and bridges. Do not drive into flooded areas. Stay away from downed power lines.
