New Jersey Hurricane Sandy Shelters

Don’t take a chance, Save Jerseyans.

Visit and prepare yourself NOW for Hurricane Sandy (especially those of you in the Shore counties). We’ll do our best on this end to post information from officials. If you can’t safely shelter in your own home, and you can’t stay with friends, family, or a hotel at a safe distance, then please rely on one of the state-run or Red Cross-operated shelters; optimally, do so before the storm arrives in order to minimize the risk to yourself and first responders.
