As Hurricane Ivan showed signs of veering west of Florida’s Gulf Coast, LazyDays RV SuperCenter continued participating in relief efforts for other areas affected by the two previous storms that hit the state.
According to the Fort Pierce Tribune, St. Lucie County, located on the Atlantic Coast, where the eye of Hurricane Frances hit shore, was negotiating Saturday (Sept. 11) with the Seffner-based dealership to bring 350 vehicles to the area.
“The process is moving along quickly,” said County Administrator Doug Anderson.
Once negotiations are finalized, the county will publicize a phone number residents can call to ask for one of the RVs, he said. County and city code rules would be waived so people could park the RVs in front yards and driveways.
The threat of Hurricane Ivan had slowed plans somewhat because residents would not be able to safely stay in RVs if another hurricane were to come through the area, he said. If Ivan becomes a problem, the RVs might not be ready until Wednesday, but Anderson said he hopes to have them available sooner.
