AccuWeather continues to believe Erika will be a tropical storm when it is in the vicinity of Florida.
Question: If I were in Florida's east coast what would I do to prepare for Erika? The only thing I would do at this point is get any prescription drugs refilled if you are low. On the outside chance this storm strengthens more than we think, and since the weekend is approaching, you might want to consider getting them refilled. Otherwise, I don't recommend any other special precautions at this point.
