About this Episode

Florida’s emergency operations center is tracking Hurricane Delta as it heads for the Gulf of Mexico.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Gov. Ron DeSantis visits The Villages to announce the state will be distributing more than 400,000 new rapid COVID-19 test kits per week for the near future. First in line are nursing homes and adult living centers.

— The Florida Department of Health confirmed 2,251 additional cases of COVID-19 Tuesday and 59 more fatalities.

— With just seven hours before the deadline, the state’s voter registration website crashed. So, the Governor extended the deadline for another seven hours Tuesday to make up for the lost time. The extension originally expired at midnight.

— The head of the Drug Enforcement Administration visits Tallahassee to announce they’ve busted a drug ring that was flooding North Florida with meth made in Mexico. The Franklin County Sheriff says it’s nothing like “Breaking Bad.”

— A deep dive into the Public Service Commission’s decision to deny a request for a 90-day moratorium on utility disconnections during the pandemic.

— And finally, a Florida Man lost his job as a school principal after telling a parent he gave equal time to Holocaust deniers because didn’t “know for sure” it actually happened. So, you can only guess who might be getting his job back.
