IN CASE YOU MISSED IT… Sen. Rick Scott Partners with Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore for Hurricane Preparedness PSA

June 10, 2024

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In case you missed it, Senator Rick Scott and The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore recently teamed up for a public service announcement urging Floridians to prepare for the hurricane season that began on June 1st.  


Last month, Senator Scott traveled the state and urged Florida families to make a plan to get ready for the 2024 Hurricane Season as part of his statewide Hurricane Preparedness Tour. During his statewide tour, Senator Scott emphasized the importance of hurricane preparedness and met with local elected leaders, law enforcement, emergency management officials and business owners. See more from Senator Scott’s visits to Melbourne, Mexico Beach, St. Pete Beach, Hialeah and Ft. Myers.


Senator Scott continues fighting to ensure Washington remains a partner to Floridians still recovering from past storms and will show up should disaster strike again. In May, Senator Scott sent a letter to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Deanne Criswell once again voicing concerns about the impending exhaustion of the Disaster Relief Fund (DRF). As Floridians prepare for hurricane season, the DRF must be fully funded and able to respond following natural disasters. This letter follows reports that the agency expects the DRF to run out of funds by August 2024 and may need to activate an immediate needs funding designation as early as June. Read more HERE.
