The Hurricane is expected to move near the east coast of Florida from Saturday afternoon through Sunday.

On Friday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued a state of emergency for certain counties in Florida, including Orange County and Osceola County, and sent a letter requesting President Donald Trump issue an Emergency Declaration for various counties in Florida. President Donald Trump has since approved the request, and federal disaster assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency has since been offered to the state of Florida.
