FLORIDA GOV. DESANTIS WARNS THOSE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF HURRICANE VICTIMS: ‘WE ARE A LAW AND ORDER STATE’

JIMMY PATRONIS: I'm going to be very frank with you. This is about my seventh year in this type of a capacity dealing with the disasters in the state. This is going to be the biggest disaster in the history of the state of Florida. We have sent unprecedented resources in over 11 urban centers for rescue teams. The state of Florida has eight teams. We said we're bringing a lot of resources from other states. FEMA has been very supportive, met with the administrator yesterday. But we've got over a thousand skilled urban search and rescue team members on the job working 12-hour shifts. It's the most massive effort we've ever been a part of.
