In a couple of days you will know which is the correct thing to do, some will say they shouldn't have left, some will say they should have. Speaking from someone that rebuilt there house from the last hurricane, get out! We call the motorhome our exit strategy. We now own a house that will withstand a cat 4,5 hurricane and our plan is to view any hurricane from far away. Even the most minor hurricanes shut down basic services, no electricity, water or sewer, so what exactly are you staying for? I remember during Katrina, they interview all the people that were partying on Bourbon Street because the weather forecasters always over blew the dangers. For those that want to play the odds and stay, I have no sympathy!
We live on galveston bay, went through hurricane ike. 4' of water in the house and major roof damage from trees falling over. Move rv about 75miles west out of harms way. we parked at a wallmart and parked close to the walls of the building. As wind changed direction we moved to the other side. Make sue your rv is full of fuel when you return home. May have power outages for a while and cannot purchase fuel local. Also make sure you have supplies,foods,medicines and pet supplies. We lived in rv for a year as we rebuilt home.Remember to take flooding into account as well as wind. They always talk about the storm surge but never give you information on how high the surge will be!
