Following a record-breaking season last year, with 30 named storms, Moody is encouraging Floridians to make preparations now and to have a plan in place.
Florida remains under a state of emergency due to the spread of the novel coronavirus and Moody’s Price Gouging Hotline remains active for consumers to file complaints related to price increases on essential commodities needed to help prevent the spread of the virus.
Moody assembled a Rapid Response Team to quickly respond to reports of unlawful price increases. Since Gov. Ron DeSantis’ COVID-19 emergency declaration activating Florida’s price gouging laws, Moody’s office has issued dozens of subpoenas, deactivated more than 100 online posts and secured thousands in direct refunds for consumers.
Scott, who is in self-quarantine after meeting with the president of Brazil and members of his staff who tested positive for coronavirus, appeared on Fox News on Monday to weigh in on his ideas.
The storm is expected to strengthen before possibly making landfall Wednesday in Florida’s Panhandle. Florida’s price gouging law applies to sales within counties covered by the declared state of emergency.
