Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Wednesday evening that residents who did not evacuate and need help may need to wait until the worst of the storm passes. “Local first responders will deploy as soon as it’s safe to do so,” DeSantis said, according to CNN. “By and large, until the storm passes, they are not going to go into a situation for rescue and put their own folks at risk.” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
