12 SEP 2017: Governor Rick Scott received a full update from the State Emergency Operations Center yesterday, as Tropical Storm Irma continued to move through Florida. Scott joined the US Coast Guard for an aerial tour of Tropical Storm Irma impacts in the Florida Keys.  

Just hours after Scott’s request, Donald Trump approved a major disaster declaration, which authorizes federal funding to flow directly to Floridians impacted by Tropical Storm Irma and reimburses local communities and the state government to aid in response and recovery. The Governor will continue to be in constant communication with state and local emergency management officials, city and county leaders, and utility officials as Tropical Storm Irma moves out of the state and the full response and recovery process begins.
