  • Also, trying to locate it on the map. My son is in Pensacola.

    He's safe - I'm about 45 minutes away from Tavares, and it takes me about 6 hours to get to Pensacola.

  • A good friend of mine from high school lives there. Her house is just outside of the evacuation zone. She said she'd never been so scared in her life.
