But Scott said Thursday that no one knows exactly how the storm will impact Florida. The Republican National Convention is in a low-lying area near the water in downtown Tampa.

Scott says that RNC officials will be in constant contact with state, local and federal officials to make sure that they have the latest information on the storm, which could hit the Florida Keys and then move up along the west coast of the state.

The governor did urge Floridians to have enough supplies to sustain themselves for 72 hours.
