Published August 26th, 2012
MARION COUNTY - The ninth storm of this hurricane season, Isaac is moving away from Florida...
But this doesn't stop many in Marion County from stocking up.
Dawn Kronen who had to evacuate Key West while on vacation makes his way back home to ocala to make last minute purchases at Home Depot.
He says he'd rather be prepared than sorry.
"For the folks down in the Keys it's hitting them really hard right now," Kronen said. "but we'll just lose two days and then we'll head over to Cocoa Beach and spend a few days on the beach."
Home Depot says most of its customers purchase 3 days worth of essentials such as water, batteries and propane.
