List of Shelters for Each Island

Below you will find a list of emegency shelters open on each island. If you choose to relocate to a shelter, don't forget to bring a 3-day supply of medications and pet food. In some cases, the shelters do not provide food or water - so intend to bring your own. You should also take with you your own bedding and other emergency supplies.
