Hurricane essential are flying off the shelves as Escambia County residents prepare for possibility of Hurricane Irma. At the Walmart on Pensacola Boulevard in Ensley Sunday night, the water aisle was empty. Officials say it’s still too early to know exactly where Irma will go, and it’s a good time to review your supplies and hurricane plan, just in case.

    No water because every one sent water to Houston not because of Irma.

    I encourage everyone that has to work for their food and does not have an ebt card to quickly gather necessities because if you dont make it through the storm who is gonna take care of the ones that depend on us!
