Broward County shelters are prepared and ready to open as needed. Currently, there are no plans to open general population shelters, including pet friendly shelters. This is subject to change pending weather conditions. However, due to the possibility of power outages, which place special needs residents at risk, Broward County opened three special needs adult shelters and one pediatric special needs shelter at 2 p.m. today. Broward County is still accepting applications for special needs residents. To register, call the Emergency Hotline at 311 or 954-831-4000.
Residents are strongly encouraged not to go outside or wade in standing flood water, which can contain contaminants such as sewage and chemicals. Children or pets are strongly discouraged from going outside or playing in flood waters. Following a heavy storm, sharp debris could be hidden in the water and cause injury. Standing water also may contain harmful bacteria that could cause infection. If downed power lines are hidden under standing water, there is the risk of electrocution.
To report downed powerlines and outages, please call 1-800-4OUTAGE (1-800-468-8243).
