Inmates in hurricane areas are transported days ahead of the storm making landfall. In my case, we were in a federal camp in Miami FL when a couple hurricanes hit Dade County. They loaded all the inmates onto buses (shackled) and driven to downtown Miami where the Federal Detention Center is. This is a tall structure in the middle of all the government buildings. It is more like a skyscraper for inmates which can and did withstand several major storms with no impact issues at all. If they predicted that there would be major rainfall, the buses took the Miami inmates all the way to the middle of the state (FCI Coleman, near Tampa) to miss the direction of the storm altogether.
