As homebound evacuees clog interstates, Gov. Rick Scott says food, water and fuel are also heading to South Florida.
Scott told reporters Tuesday afternoon at the state Emergency Operations Center in Tallahassee that the biggest push underway is to get the power on.
“I know we have over 30,000 linemen here and people that’ll clean up debris for them, along with the people that already work at our companies," Scott said.
The state also needs the ports fully operational in order to deliver fuel.
