Floridians hunt for supplies

September 18, 2004

Albany- Melissa Tolleson lives in Albany but her parents and grandparents live in Pensacola, Florida.

She says she searched all over Albany to find gas cans and other supplies to take to her relatives in Florida who are with power and water.

"Even finding generators are difficult up here. Everybody says that the suppliers are sending them down south, so we got ahold of one generator and we're trying to find all the gas cans because all the gas stations in Pensacola are closed and we need to be able to get home," she says.

Retailers say over the past few days they've seen dozens of Floridians and Alabamians loading their carts with disaster relief supplies.
