LEE COUNTY, Fla.-- If you need to find out your evacuation route, or nearby shelters you can do so by texting FEMA.

Just text the word “shelter” and the zip code you’re in to the number, 4-FEMA.

For example, if you were near our studio on Pine Island Road, in Cape Coral, you would need to text “shelter” and 33991 to 4-FEMA for information.
