Citrus County, Florida-- In the days before a hurricane hits, the lines at grocery stores often seem to wrap around the building as shoppers stock up on day-to-day essentials like water, ice and batteries. But for people with special needs, planning for a storm should start weeks — or even months — in advance of a hurricane.

With hurricane season ramping up, the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind all of our citizens to register with Emergency Management’s special needs program as soon as possible.
