Several viewers have sent us emails claiming businesses are price gouging on the water!

We have not confirmed any cases.

But If you feel a store is gouging on prices whether it's for water, gas or other hurricane essentials let our Attorney General know.

Ashley Moody has activated the state's price gouging hotline.

If you feel a store is hiking up their prices, you can call 866-966-SCAM or download Florida's "no scam' app.
