By early Monday, more than two million Florida residents were under evacuation orders. Later that day, the number rose to 2.5 million as the state’s leaders expanded the area based on updated projections.
As of Tuesday morning, Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) warned that it was no longer safe for those in some regions to flee.
“If you are in any of those counties it is no longer possible to safely evacuate. It’s time to hunker down and prepare for the storm,” DeSantis said. “Do what you need to do to stay safe. If you are where that storm is approaching, you’re already in hazardous conditions. It’s going to get a lot worse very quickly. So please hunker down.”
