Keep an emergency kit, including non-perishable food, water, batteries, flashlights, manual can opener, and a battery-operated radio.

Know your evacuation route. Osceola County Emergency Management will order or advise evacuations if conditions warrant. If evacuations are called for, it is imperative that you follow instructions in the time frame noted. In St. Cloud, there is a flood evacuation rally point off East 10th Street and Eastern Ave. Visit for more information on flood evacuation, emergency alerts, and steps to take to prepare for a hurricane.
