By now, we all know that South Florida is currently under a hurricane watch, with evacuations being ordered in areas from Key West to as far north as the Space Coast. If you live in an evacuation zone, there is still time to make your way to the nearest shelter via your own power or via several bus shuttles.

New Florida Majority is working with a number of groups to help our neighborhoods prepare for what could be one of the deadliest storms to ever hit the state. One of those organizations is Communities United Inc (http://www.communitiesunitedinc.com) , which helps run several senior-focused programs in Liberty City, Overtown and Little Haiti.

Here are some of their suggestions, especially for seniors. Those who need additional information on Emergency Assistance, call Communities United, Inc.  at (305) 754-3993.
