Florida National Guard assists in distributing emergency supplies to residents

Relief efforts are continuing throughout Florida, including thousands of people living in the Tampa Bay region alone who still don’t have power or water service. Members of the Florida National Guard spent the day distributing hundreds of cases of water and other supplies to some of those who need it the most at Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota County. The site served about 500 families on Saturday, providing each family with a case of water, six MREs (meals ready to eat) and two bags of ice.
