/, News, Uncategorized/Lee County shelters update

Lee  County Emergency Management is providing shelter at 4 locations tonight (Monday) for people who remained in the shelters today and for people who have incurred hurricane damage to their homes and need a place to stay temporarily.

The Lee County Emergency Management is downsizing from 14 shelters to 4 sites, 2 of which are new to the shelter list.

Open shelters tonight include:

Germain arena, 11000 Everglades Parkway, Estero

Alico arena, FGCU campus

North  Ft Myers Rec. Center ( new) 2000 N Recreation Way. N Ft Myers

Dunbar Middle School (new) 4750 Winkler Avenue Extension, Ft Myers

These four shelters will take evacuees beginning at 6 p. m.

People who are in one of the existing shelters that are now closing and need transportation to a new shelter will be transported by LeeTran. Those who can drive to shelters are encouraged to do so.

All people staying at one of these shelters Monday night need to register at the door, even if they stayed in a Lee County shelter during the weekend.

The  people who have remained in Alico and Germain TODAY will simply complete another registration form.

Decisions about how long the shelters will remain open will be made in tandem with Emergency Management recovery efforts this week.

All shelters are pet friendly. Please bring a crate for your pet or a leash.
