My roommate and myself live in an apartment in Hollywood, FL right off the beach. We both have no records of any kind and just recently moved here. During a hurricane is there anyone more inland with a good sturdy home that would be willing to take us in?

We would pay money for your hospitality and would bring our own food and water.

I also have some ammo I'd be willing to give instead of cash if you so wish.

PM if you don't want it in the open chat.

My roommate is a girl and no you can't touch her in any way :tongueout:

ETA we have our own flashlights as well. any other supplies we should have at our disposal? I picked up a hurricane guide at a local Publix.

I'm kind of limited for space but I do have room for one. Send her over and find a nice shelter for yourself.:thumbsup:

No room here, sorry, but do locate the available shleters near you. They fill up fast.

As far as supplies, you will need more than a flashlight. You'll need water, food, medical supplies, and cash. Make sure your car is filled with gas. Don't wait until the last minute.

Make sure you have a battery powered radio.

This is a minimum list.

Hurricanes are nothing to fool around with.

When one appears, the tension of everyone ratchets up a few notches.

Are there metal detectors in the shelters? If I have a permit I can legally carry there?

If we can't defend ourselves we'd like to stay away from those. I've seen what happens to people in those places.

I've been in quite a few shelters in Florida because of our ham radio operations. The shelters in Florida are not like the Louisiana Superdome or the convention center..

I've never seen metal detectors-I doubt there are any anywhere. I've seen signs saying no weapons, but they have no force of law, and I've carried in shelters. The one problem you may run into is that often shelters are located in schools, which are off limits. Shelters in church's are no problem.

If you are on the beach and there is a hurricane warning, you will probably have to evacuate. Traffic is a nightmare. Plan ahead.

Passive101,
If SHTF I could maybe sway the wife to let a fellow GTer stay here in orlando area. I know its a drive but we are far inland.

Gmountain said it right, CASH and make sure you fill up your car or both cars. I have 4, 6gallon containers i always fill. In orlnado people get down right nasty post hurricane we have fights at the one or two grocery stores that are open and at gas stations.

Canned goods and lots of water is definitly a must. some get MRE's. If your on any mnedication's make sure you have enough, pharmacies close too.

take care hope you never have to use your evac plan:thumbsup:
