Governor Ron DeSantis encourages Floridians to be prepared in the event of a storm as the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) is monitoring the path of Invest 98L and potential impacts on Florida as Invest 98L develops.
The Governor and FDEM Director Kevin Guthrie remain in constant communication with local government officials from all 67 counties, the National Hurricane Center, and the National Weather Service.
“I encourage all Floridians to be prepared and make a plan in the event a storm impacts Florida,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “We will continue to monitor the path and trajectory of Invest 98L and we remain in constant contact with all state and local government partners.”
“As the Division continues to support communities in their recovery from Hurricane Ian, we are now closely monitoring 98L,” said FDEM Director Kevin Guthrie. “It is critical for Floridians to review their disaster preparedness plans and follow all directions from local officials in anticipation of potential impacts.”
As of 9:00 AM EST, a disturbance over the Southwest Atlantic developed into Invest 98L, with a high chance of strengthening into a subtropical or tropical depression.
Regardless of intensity or exact path of the system, Floridians are reminded to prepare for an increased risk of coastal flooding, heavy winds, rain, rip currents and beach erosion. Wind gusts can be expected as soon as Tuesday of next week along Florida’s East Coast.
