Christ Church Foundation School is one of several hurricane centres across the island. (FP)

IN THE EVENT that you and your family are unable to ride out a storm or hurricane in your home, several hurricane shelters are available across the island.

Shelters may be public or private property and wardens are put in place to supervise those who chose to stay there.
