Safety Tips and Resources After a Hurricane
- Do not return home until local officials indicate it is safe to do so.
- If you encounter flood waters, remember – turn around, don’t drown. Don't drive through a flooded area.
- Emergency workers may be assisting people in flooded areas or cleaning up debris. If possible, stay off the roads and out of the way as much as possible to avoid endangering yourself and first responders.
The American Red Cross Safe and Well website is a free public reunification tool that allows individuals and organizations to register and post messages to indicate that they are safe, or to search for loved ones. The site is always available and open to the public and available in Spanish. Registrations and searches can be done directly on the website. Messages exist in both Spanish and English. To speak with someone at the American Red Cross concerning a missing friend or relative, please contact 1-800 REDCROSS OR 1-800-733-2767, choose option 1.
