Hurricane Preparedness Resources
GasBuddy Fuel Availability Tracker: If you plan to evacuate, do so as soon as possible. Expect delays on the road. Remember that it's better to be sheltering at home during a storm than stuck in traffic. If driving, leave with a full tank of gas. Check the GasBuddy Fuel Availability Tracker to see which stations still have fuel.
Special Needs Registry: For many seniors and people with special needs, riding out the hurricane at home or evacuating can be an unsettling experience, especially for those who require ongoing medical attention during and after the storm. If you think you will need assistance during the storm, sign up for the City's Special Needs Registry by dialing 3-1-1 or visiting NOLAReady.com for more info.
