I live in the path of Hurricane Harvey. We are expecting 12-20" of rain. I have an outdoor turtle.

I need to dry dock her for up to 48 hours. Will she be okay without food/water for that amount of time?

Thanks!

She could be, though I would have a tote with water for her to soak in and drink. Be safe!

Thank you. I'll take her home with me then. I was planning on leaving her in my classroom but I'll take her home so I can soak her.
