Florida PSC Urges Panhandle Residents to Be Prepared

TALLAHASSEE — As Tropical Storm Nate heads into the Gulf of Mexico, the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) urges panhandle residents to prepare now.

According to the Weather Channel, the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season is now among the top 10 all-time most active seasons on record. The PSC wants Floridians to continue to be prepared for active weather through the end of hurricane season on November 30.

“As the PSC and Florida’s utilities continue to monitor Tropical Storm Nate, we advise residents to be prepared,” said PSC Chairman Julie Brown.  “This active storm season has reminded us that we cannot be complacent; it’s never too early to implement your storm plan.”
