Here’s a list of open shelters in Florida to protect people from Hurricane Dorian

If you aren’t sure where to go, find the shelter nearest to you.

Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried‘s office said a total of 108 shelters open in Florida as of 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

That number showed some decline from earlier in the day. More than 7,200 individuals have already taken shelter in one of the locations. That, too, shows a reduction in use, as 10,400 were using shelters as of 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Shelters have activated in Brevard, Broward, Duval, Glades, Hendry, Highlands, Indian River, Marion, Martin, Nassau, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Putnam, Seminole, St. Johns, St. Lucie, Sumter and Volusia counties.

Here’s a list of shelters by county. This post will be updated.
