Have a place to goWhile creating your family disaster plan, one item that should be discussed is where to go when you evacuate.Here a few things to consider while preparing to evacuate:
- Do not delay your departure. As soon as an evacuation order is given, leave immediately.
- Keep your travel distance to a minimum. Try to select an evacuation destination that is nearest to your home. Remember that hotels and other commercial destinations could fill up quickly, especially in storm that affects a large area.
- Be patient while traveling. Evacuations caused by extreme weather will probably cause massive delays and congestion.
- If staying at a hotel, make reservations before you leave. The longer you wait to make a reservation, the less likely you will find a vacancy.
