Although the path of Irma is uncertain at this time, (& Jim Cantore is in the studio – so THAT’S good news!), we wanted to give you shelter info in advance, so you can incorporate it into your plans.
The shelter for our area will again be the Semmes Middle School, but Mobile County Health Department will have a shelter open for those needing continuous electricity and such for life maintaining devices. This medical shelter is located at Burns Middle School at 6175 Girby Rd.Although the Health Department will operate the shelter, there will be no medical staff on site and everyone going to this shelter must bring their own life sustaining equipment, 1 care giver (this number is strictly enforced), and all the items that would be needed at any other shelter (food, water, sleeping bag, pillow). There is limited space at the shelter on Girby Rd as well.
