Attorney General Bondi Offers Tips for National Preparedness Month
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—September is National Preparedness Month and Attorney General Pam Bondi is encouraging Floridians to make sure preparations are in place for upcoming hurricanes. Two hurricanes hit Florida in the past two years and Tropical Storm Gordon is currently looming in the Gulf of Mexico.
