Hurricane season begins June 1st and that means it's time to start thinking about hurricane supplies.
Governor Rick Scott signed legislation this morning creating a nine-day sales tax holiday on hurricane supplies starting May 31.
It is intended to help cut the cost of creating a storm kit and remind people to prepare for potential storms.
Here's what you can buy tax free:
- a flashlight.
- two way or weather radio.
- a tarp or other waterproofing material.
- a first aid kit.
- a cooler.
And a generator that costs less than 750 dollars.
W-E-A-R will help you get prepared with "Storm Watch 2014" - a half-hour special on what you need to know to protect your home and family.
The special airs Friday May 30th at 7 pm, right here on Channel 3.
