Florida family prepares for the worst as Hurricane Irma approaches
PALM BAY, Fla. (WICS) —
Residents all across Florida are bracing for Hurricane Irma.
We spoke to one former Springfield resident, Annette Dennison, about how she and her family are getting ready.
"Getting up awful early to get to the Home Depot to pick up some plywood this morning: Water, screws, everything," Annette Dennison of Palm Bay, Florida said. "Putting -- cleaning up the outside for debris that's going to be flying, filling up with gas -- gas lines are really long -- and, making an evacuation route, the fact that it is so wide, it's even scarier."
Annette says she and her family will evacuate but will decide where to go once the hurricane’s path is more clear.
