LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- As Hurricane Dorian closes in on Florida, people in Southwest Florida have been getting ready by stocking up on supplies and filling up their gas tanks.
People have already been running into long lines as they try to fill up their tanks and gas canisters. And that's if they're lucky to find a station with gas in the first place, with a lot of stations running out by Thursday afternoon.
Fox 4's Breaking News Tracker went around to a bunch of stations in Lee County finding places that are still supplying.
A tool you can use to find stations with gas in the next few days is Gas Buddy's fuel tracker app. When you use the app you can see which stations have no gas, diesel, or power. The app gets their data by people reporting it, so if you find a station with or without gas be sure to report it.
“We don’t know really exactly where it’s going to hit right now, so we really want to try to get prepared,” said Cesar Duran, Cape Coral.
Officials say now is also the time to load up on supplies like water, batteries, and non-perishable food.
A lot of places around Southwest Florida are running out of water and if they have some, they are limiting just how much one person can buy.
