SOUTHWEST FLORIDA-- One of the big items you'll need in case of a hurricane is drinkable water.

Already, some are reporting stores have run out.

At least one person seems to be taking advantage of that-- trying to price gouge on packs of water.

This is a photo one viewer sent in from the website letgo.com

You can see the person who posted this, who is in cape coral, is selling packs of water for 100 dollars a pack.

While some stores have run out of water, chances are they will get new shipments in the next few days.

When searching for water or other supplies for your hurricane kit remember to be thorough: check all the grocery stores in your area, check convenience stores as well, even non-food stores may sell packs of bottled water.

Also check before you head out the door: call places and check to see if they have bottled water in stock to save yourself some time.
