Cold supplies sell out as Florida prepares for a chill

- As temperatures drop to 46 degrees tonight and 32 degrees tomorrow night, there's a rush to find ways to stay warm.

The search is on at the Millenia Home Depot.

Customer Mary Brewer says, "We're looking for a heater."It's the "hottest" selling item today.

Mary also went on to say "We're not use to the cold weather, so it get 30-40 degrees we think we're freezing." So as mother nature gives us all the cold shoulder, "Wearing clothes that I hardly ever get a chance to wear. We don't want this to go on for too long." She's one of the lucky ones, who got a space heater, but others will have to find another way to stay warm. 

Customer Darius Payman says, "Looking for an electric heater,went to a few places and they're sold out everywhere so it's hard to find. I feel bad for the people who really need it at home."

The managers at Home Depot say they plan to restock their large space heaters by this weekend. There are still smaller ones available for sale.

Managers saw a rush first thing this morning. Assistant Manager Remy Arce says, "We've been selling a lot of heaters, space heaters. Also we've been selling a lot of blankets for our plants."

Workers bring plants inside for protection, while others will have blankets. "When the temperature drops under 45 degrees, that's when we start covering our plants."

And don't forget to cover your furry friends. Alyssa Chandler of Orange County Animal Services says, "Anytime pets are outside in the cold they can get very cold just like humans, they don't like being outside so just bring those pets indoors where they'll be nice and warm."
