We live in Dodge, TX...far enough away from the Gulf to only get a good rain and winds even if it’s a big storm. If a DiveBuddy member family in the Texas area needs a place to stay, we have a pop-up camper that can sleep 5. Send me a message if you need to evacuate and would like to use our camper until the storm blows over.

There will be shelters set up in North LA around the Shreveport area if anyone needs them. I would advise against trying to get hotels because I have heard they are all booked up. If anyone needs to relocate to this area drop me an email and I will do what i can to help.

I think this is absolutely awesome- everyone is so generous! What a wonderful idea to promote safety and shelter, and to offer your own homes. If I could help I would, I am in AZ but I am actually flying to FL on Monday...Hopefully! :) I hope everyone stays safe!
