If you are not evacing by Wednesday from South Florida then probably to late due, traffic, fuel availability.
Then there's uncertainty in storm path after South Florida which could take it anywhere from mid gulf Coast to the Carolinas - to soon to tell as
models and ensembles loose much accuracy at 5 day point.
You could end up in path anyway.
I'd look for concrete and lots of it, preferably above any surge possibility - 20'+
I think you're in a built up area of affluence so go find solid concrete structure you can use as plan "b" if things appear to be going towards
Few residential buildings are designed with this in mind.
Look for anything "poured" that gives southern and eastern protection from winds. For instance parking structures with "tinker toy" upside down "tee"
construction are not good.
Older buildings with concrete panels are better than new fake stucco types.
You have many days to scout out something more inland, higher elevation, stronger construction - do so.
Meanwhile if you have funds get bottled or jugged water like 5 minutes ago - at least gallon a day/10 days worth.
Sporting goods get water purification straw or bottle with filter good for pathogens.
If under age get ball bat, knife or bb gun for protection.
Get 8'x8' tarp for shade along with 100' paracord to hang it or make other handy things.
Get canned meat that's already cooked - plan 16oz day for 10 days, ham, spam, deviled meat, Vienna sausage - protein for sustainable energy. Beef
jerky is great.
Little cheese n cracker packs requiring no refrigeration.
Canned bread or crackers in foil packs.
Cookies in resealable packs.
Mixed nuts in cans that are resealable.
You can also do canned fruit in single serve pop top cans.
The obvious like flashlight, batteries, portable radio and such.
Get the stuff in the car and be ready to go to plan "b" location if conditions are still safe and expected conditions call for it.
If you have to do plan "b" bag 2 days water, food ecetera and hide near yor plan b location just in case you're looted and need backup - let's you
walk away without violent encounter to protect all your goods.
Sorry can't give more but details are sketchy, the bit here will keep you going if you can avoid surge and have/find concrete windproof place to hang
Prayers to everyone there.
