Cold weather supplies running out fast as arctic blast hits Northwest Florida
PENSACOLA, Fla. (WEAR) —
People are buying everything from firewood to faucet covers, trying to deal with this week's freezing temperatures in Northwest Florida.
At Home Depot on Mobile Highway, pipe insulation has been moved to the front of the store so customers can find it easily. Space heaters are flying off the shelves; staffers said that's the item people ask for most.
People are buying products to seal around doors and windows, trying to keep the cold air out.
Robert Vaker with Home Depot said, "We've actually got a couple of products in the store that are like little sweeps that go right up under. And if not, even a basic towel will help out, and we talk to customers that they can put in there to help just slow down that draft."
Firepits are also a big seller right now. The store has firewood on hand, but it is going fast. For now, faucet covers are sold out, but Home Depot is working to get the stores restocked.
