Dade Residents Find Some Pumps Dry, Water In Short Supply

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A South Florida continues to prepare for Hurricane Irma gas and water are high demand.

A gas station on U.S. 1 where it meets Card Sound Road in Florida City has been busy around the clock as Keys residents and visitors head north ahead of the storm. Most of the pumps were not running because they were out of gas.

Ruben Diaz, who has lived in Key West for ten years, stopped to gas up. He said he’s never evacuated in the past, but this time is different.

“It’s a Cat 5, maybe a Cat 4, we’re not taking any chances. We tied our boats up and we’re leaving,” he said.
