Know Where to Seek Help

Find out where a local shelter will be set up in case you need to seek assistance. Identify a family member or friend who can provide a place to stay if you must evacuate. Map out several routes to both locations, in case damage prevents use of the obvious path. Note, most emergency shelters will not allow pets, so keep your family's animals in mind as you make plans.
