The National Weather Service issued a hurricane warning for part of the Florida Gulf Coast as Tropical Storm Elsa regains strength and could soon become a hurricane once again.

A hurricane warning was issued along the west coast from Egmont Key to the Steinhatchee River. Tropical storm warnings were in effect for the Florida Keys, and up and down the west coast of Florida up to the Ochlockonee River.

“Be prepared to be without power for a few days, having enough food and water for each person in your family, including for your pets,” the governor warned Floridians on Tuesday morning as he spoke at a news conference from the State Emergency Operations Center in Tallahassee.

 “It’s important that Floridians don’t focus on the cone. Impacts are expected well outside that area,” DeSantis cautioned.
