Tropical Storm Hermine is expected to intensify into a hurricane before it hits Florida's Gulf coast Thursday night.
And state officials are telling residents to prepare for the worst.
"We have 6,000 members of our National Guard ready to be mobilized. But just think, we're going to have storm surge, we're going to have rain, we have the risk of tornado, and this is going to go across the state," Florida Gov. Rick Scott told reporters.
