Florida and Georgia Shelter Status

TALLAHASSEE In the threat of Hurricane Frances, shelters across Georgia and Florida are providing space for evacuating residents.

Shelters are open in counties across the state of Florida. For specific information regarding shelters in your area, call the American Red Cross at 1-800-HELP-NOW or the Florida Emergency Information Line at 1-800-342-3557.

Georgia shelters are open in Colquitt, Cook, Echols, Glynn, Lowndes, and Sumter counties. For specific information regarding Georgia shelters, call (404) 635-7154.
