Gov. DeSantis (R-FL): “We know that [Hurricane Ian] is gonna have major impacts on Florida’s golf course … Gulf Coast.”

Governor Ron DeSantis, a Republican from Florida, gave a press conference about the incoming hurricane set to make landfall with Florida on Wednesday. Hurricane Ian is the forth Atlantic hurricane this season but it will be the first hurricane to directly hit the Tampa Bay Area in Florida in over 100 years. Governor DeSantis declared a State of Emergency and Tampa Bay residents are being encouraged to leave the area.

DESANTIS: “We know that this is going to have major impacts on Florida's golf course, uh, Gulf Coast. We've issued waivers of weight restrictions for commercial trucks to ensure we have ample fuel and resources coming into Florida. Make sure you're prepared, there's no need to panic buy. If you normally don't drink a lot of water, you know, you may not need to go out and buy 20 gallons of water right now, so just do what you need to be prepared.”
