DeSantis also said the state is working hard to identify how they can help the Bahamas recover.
"I've asked former U.S. Ambassador to the Bahamas, John Rood, to coordinate and be Florida's point person for ways we can do relief for the Bahamas," DeSantis said.
The Bahamas were directly hit by the Category 5 storm, resulting in major flood damage, loss of homes and a death toll that now sits at 23 people. The storm hovered over the islands for almost two days, causing a storm surge that resulted in "generational devastation," according to Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Minnis.
DeSantis also said that Florida will be ready to aid the Carolinas at a moment's notice. The two states have been hit hard over the past 24 hours, with Dorian strengthening to a Category 3 after being downgraded to a Category 2 over the weekend.
The desire to come together to aid the Bahamas has also crossed party lines with elected officials in Florida. State Rep. Shevrin Jones. a Democrat who represents District 101, has been working closely with Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Rick Scott to get visa waivers for Dorian victims in the Bahamas.
