Hi All!  What are some children's picture book titles that involve fleeing one's home because of some kind of emergency or natural disaster?

I don't think there's any fleeing, but you might check out Smoky Night by Eve Bunting and Blackout by John Rocco.

I don't have any specific titles, but I believe several children's books came out after Hurricane Katrina which captured the terrible disaster and involved people fleeing and being displaced from their homes.   Perhaps Google can help?
