Do not wait to evacuate if you feel unsafe. Leaving early increases your chance of survival and late evacuations put you, your neighbors, and first responders at risk.
The best rule of thumb is to have at least 2 ways of egress. Every member of your family should know all possible ways to get out of your neighborhood in case one or more egress routes are blocked. The best way to learn routes out of your neighborhood is to take a day and drive around, prepare for low visibility and challenges specific to your situation. Do not count solely on mapping software and applications as they often do not show gates and other road hazards.
