TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Tomorrow, Governor Rick Scott will be joining Florida Department of Transportation crews across the City of Tallahassee to assist with debris removal in the aftermath of Hurricane Hermine.
Governor Scott said, “Over the past five days, I have travelled across Tallahassee and spoken with families affected by this storm. Driving around the city, it is clear that there is still too much debris on our roadways and in our neighborhoods. As of this afternoon, there are 15 Florida Department of Transportation crews in Leon County with more than 205 people working nonstop to remove debris so power restoration can continue as quickly as possible. At my direction, there will be even more FDOT crews coming to Tallahassee tomorrow to aid in these efforts.
“Tomorrow, I will be joining these incredibly hardworking crews all day to pick up debris. Members of the Florida National Guard, various veterans’ groups and agency heads have volunteered their time to participate in this effort with me. Cleaning up these areas in Tallahassee is not only crucial to helping utility workers quickly restore power, but it is also crucial to keeping our families and children safe.
Below is the Governor’s schedule for tomorrow. However, volunteers will be picking up debris all day in these neighborhoods.
