Where are the storm shelters located?
Republic does not have certified storm shelters available; however, several area businesses and churches have volunteered to become emergency storm refuge areas. Please note that these areas are not a certified shelter and the City does not recommend or endorse their safety.

Should you decide to take refuge in one of these areas, always remember your travel time to these shelters as you could be left less protected in your vehicle than in your own home. For a list of the volunteer storm refuge shelters, please visit the Emergency Management Weather Refuge Page.
