The OP could just go to a local shelter. Broward County where he is has among the best building codes, so they likely have good shelters.3504PIR wrote: ↑Thu Sep 07, 2017 3:00 pmOP should have left on Monday when it was clear what was coming. Having lived through 5 hurricanes it is often the case that you're not really sure where it is going or the strength. This one is pretty clear and has been for a while. Now there are gas stations out of fuel and if he/she has gas, the traffic will be horrible.
Assuming one has the means, it would be best to assume the worst and head out on an adventure. In the OPs case, he should have headed toward Atlanta and then done some sight seeing/relaxing/shopping/dining/whatever. There is all kinds of stuff to do in GA, TN, AL, etc that could entertain them for a week or so.
I hope he left, because the chances of him living through bumper to bumper traffic and lots of headaches now is pretty high.
The former director of the NHC pointed out that people on Miami Beach could just walk a mile or two to a shelter outside of the evacuation zone.
