In his words: “Floridians on the east coast need to be prepared. If you have a plan, stick to your plan. If you haven’t made preparations, please do so.”

The governor also says he spoke with President Donald Trump, who promised to provide any help Florida needs.

DeSantis spoke at a briefing at the Florida emergency operations center in Tallahassee.
