Planning on going to one of Okeechobee's
shelters during a severe weather event?
Are you aware that shelters are not
required to provide you any comforts other then a roof over your head?
Do you know you may be in that shelter
for a number of days?
Okeechobee shelters, as well as the
others throughout the state are not pleasant places to be in. They will probably
be crowded, noisy, smelly, and most of all, uncomfortable.
It is recommended that you prepare
a shelter supplies kit to bring with you to the shelter to increase your comfort
and to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
