TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The shelves inside a Tampa Bay Walmart have no bottled water. All of it was sold out as of earlier this afternoon.
As of 4 p.m., customers were able to once again buy water. 8 On Your Side learned there was a two-case limit per customer.
Meanwhile, a family visiting from St. John’s Newfoundland, Canada, is here hopes of taking their scheduled Disney Cruise, but later found themselves looking for storm provisions.
So instead of looking forward to their vacation, they came looking for water.
“A little bit nervous. Where I’m from… we’ve been through a hurricane before. Hurricane Igor,” Paul Williams said. “But we know somewhat what to expect. So we’re just watching it and monitoring it.
Although the family didn’t find bottled water, they found the filtered water. However, that’s not the case across the area.
At a Home Depot in St. Petersburg, 8 On Your Side found some water as people across the area continue to prepare as Dorian continues to churn.
