Here are some hard facts about Hurricane Shelters in Key West:

  • Only 2 shelters are available - The Harvey Government Center, for persons with special needs, and Glynn Archer Elementary School for the public.

  • Key West may NOT have enough shelter spaces, which are available only for Category 1 and 2 Hurricanes.

  • No shelters in Monroe County will be safe in the most deadly Hurricanes - Category 3, 4 and 5.  Shelters will not be open during these most dangerous Hurricanes.  Upon the Governor's order, PEOPLE MUST EVACUATE to the mainland.  Be prepared to evacuate.  Your life is important to the people in Key West Emergency Management.  Help us help you.

This Hurricane preparedness tip is brought to you by Key West Emergency Management.
