Attorney general activates price gouging hotline
FLORIDA -- Eighteen Florida counties are under a state of emergency. That will make them eligible for more help from the state and FEMA if Karen causes big problems.
Attorney general Pam Bondi has also activated the price gouging hotline.
It is against the law for businesses to hike prices on essential items like food and gas, during emergencies.
If you see any price gouging, call the hotline at 1-866-9-NO-SCAM.
