Officials are stocking up on cots, blankets and plenty of food and water. By the looks of things many folks are choosing to either stay with friends and family or ride out the storm at home.
Only a few people are opting to spend the night at the shelter in Crawfordville, and a check at Leon and Taylor County shelters show similar results.
Still, Red Cross volunteers say they're prepared to serve anyone who walks through the door.
If you'd like to take cover at a nearby shelter, here's the list:
Wakulla County: head to Crawfordville Elementary School.
Taylor County: go to Taylor County Elementary school in Perry.
Leon County: Florida High in Southwood.
The Suwannee County coliseum is acting as a pet friendly shelter.
