Governor De Santis Tells People to Get Ready for Storm Season Right Away!

As the Atlantic hurricane season looms, Governor Ron DeSantis is calling upon Floridians to prepare for potential storms proactively. Meteorologists, backed by the latest scientific data and forecasting models, have predicted an active and potentially intense hurricane season for the region.

With the memory of past devastating storms fresh in mind, including recent events like Hurricane Ian, which caused significant damage to infrastructure and communities, Governor DeSantis is emphasizing the critical need for preparedness. He recognizes the inherent unpredictability of these natural disasters and stresses the importance of readiness at both individual and community levels.

In an effort to mitigate the potential impact of these storms, the Florida Division of Emergency Management, under the leadership of Director Kevin Guthrie, is spearheading initiatives to ensure residents are adequately equipped to face the challenges ahead. Guthrie echoes the governor’s sentiments, urging residents to take proactive measures to safeguard themselves and their families.

The state has implemented sales tax holidays on essential storm supplies, ranging from necessities like flashlights and batteries to more substantial items such as generators and emergency equipment. Governor DeSantis emphasizes the importance of ensuring residents have enough supplies to sustain themselves for at least seven days, recognizing the potential for widespread infrastructure damage and prolonged power outages.

Despite a relatively slow start to the sales tax holiday period, hardware stores anticipate a surge in demand as the season progresses. Danielle Mullins, Manager of Tallahassee Ace Hardware, notes the importance of early preparation, particularly for high-ticket items like generators, which tend to be in high demand during storm seasons.

With a second disaster sales tax holiday scheduled later in the season, Governor DeSantis is urging residents to capitalize on these opportunities to bolster their disaster preparedness efforts. The state remains committed to supporting residents in their readiness endeavors, providing resources and guidance to ensure communities are resilient in the face of adversity.
