After living in the New Orleans area when Katrina hit I would advise everyone take their RV, automobiles, personal belongings, pets, etc. as far away as possible. I was shocked with how many left their pets behind. Also be prepared for not being able to come back for weeks. It was three weeks before we got basic power back and a lot longer before it was even close to being normal. Where I lived at then it did not flood and those areas that flooded it took months if not years to come back.
If you have a S&B and are close to the coast there may not be much you can do if you are hit directly. If not close to the coastline you will need to put anything that is outside inside and board up your windows. Be prepared for long time power outages. Your food in the freezer and refrigerator will only last a day or so without power. From what I read about the rainfall amounts a lot of areas not in flood zones will flood. Hopefully you have wind/flood insurance.
The biggest thing that most people that evacuated for Katrina did not think about was how long until they could come back. Be prepared for a long wait and a longer wait until it will be back to normal.
