On the Road in an Evacuation

Hurricanes are extremely dangerous. Make evacuation plans in advance. Keep highway maps in your car and learn evacuation routes before the storm. When the Aransas County Emergency Operations Center calls for a mandatory evacuation, highways will be crowded. Watch for Texas Department of Transportation highway signs and listen to your car radio. Remember, make travel plans in advance. Expect your trip to take longer than usual.

If you haven't already, install the FEMA Mobile app to provide you with updated information, including alerts and shelter locations.

Also, check the TxDOT site regularly for information about traffic conditions and newly opened routes.
