WATCH: Storm Team 8 Special – Surviving the Storm

Local News

News Channel 8 is getting you ready for hurricane season with our ‘Surviving the Storm’ special.

We are always On Your Side with the latest information as we approach the start of hurricane season on June 1.

Our special includes exclusive interviews and footage from Mexico Beach, as well as info on flood elevation, evacuation zones, NOAA’s Hurricane Hunters, and more.

Watch above, and don’t forget that the tax-free holiday on hurricane gear starts Friday, May 31 and ends on Thursday, June 6.

Senator Rick Scott (R) was in Tampa on Thursday to help get you prepared for storm season, and he brought some of his federal partners with him.

Scott said being prepared for the storms before they reach Florida shores is the best way to avoid any issues afterwards. 

If you own a small business, the Small Business Administration can help you recover with loans, but you must have your important documents in a safe place–and that may not be your house.

“Get prepared,” Scott said at a small news conference inside Carollwood Window and Door. “Have your documents. Have your medicine. Have water. Everybody’s gonna show up, but you gotta take the time to be prepared.”
