Evacuation shelters on Oahu to open at 3:00 p.m.

 

10 tropical storm evacuation shelters will open on Oahu at 3:00 p.m. this afternoon.  Residents who feel that their home or place of residence may not be safe can utilize one of these locations as a refuge from severe weather and high surf.

 

These shelters, operated by the American Red Cross, provide only emergency refuge.  You must bring all of your supplies with you including food, water, other emergency needs as well as bedding or a cot to sleep on.  For the safety and security of evacuees Red Cross shelters do not allow smoking,  guns, drugs, alcohol or other hazardous items.

 

Those on medication should bring a 7-10 day supply of medication.  Diabetics should bring their medication and glucometers.  Those with respiratory issues should bring inhalers and nebulizers. As with all other evacuees, those on special diets should bring their own food.

 

In addition these shelters will accommodate pets.  Pet owners must provide a solid sided pet carrier or cage for each pet, food, water and sanitation supplies.  In addition owners will be expected to assist in the care of their pets.

 

The following are the Oahu evacuation shelters that will open at 3:00 p.m.
