Florida evacuees heading north stop in Kentucky
LEXINGTON, Ky. - Evacuation orders are multiplying across Florida ahead of Hurricane Irma making landfall.
People are leaving their homes behind heading north on Interstate 75 to find safety.
Larry Davis made a pit stop in Kentucky on his way from Fort Myers to Indiana.
He said finding gas and dealing with traffic along I-75 were the biggest issues he encountered.
"A normal six hour trip to get out of Florida took me ten hours. It's bad," Davis said.
He is one of many who decided to leave town and wait out the storm. He said while he is nervous about what he may return home to, he has comfort knowing he will be safe this week.
"I'm coming home. That's the main thing. That's what's most important. Everything else can be replaced" Davis said.
