BROWARD COUNTY, FL- A Hurricane watch has been issued for Broward County, meaning that hurricane conditions are expected here within 48 hours or less.

Hurricane Irma is approaching from the SE at 17mph and is predicted to impact Broward County with destructive winds.

Please activate those portions of the Hurricane Preparedness for Persons Experiencing Homelessness Procedure that you or your agency are responsible for, and step up efforts to direct homeless persons to seek shelter immediately.

Select this map for a list of Unsheltered pick-up points and select here for General Population shelters. Once a Hurricane Warning Advisory is issued, pursuant to an evacuation order, buses will begin to pick-up and transport people experiencing homelessness from the pick-up points to the General Population shelters.
