“As Tropical Storm Erika continues to develop, I urge all Floridians to remain vigilant of its progress, plan ahead and not wait until the last minute to prepare. In addition to monitoring the news and state officials’ warnings, I encourage people to visit my website at rubio.senate.gov, where we’ve posted some basic information about preparedness.
