TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Water and food supplies are flying off of the shelves as people prepare for Hurricane Michael.

But many stores are doing everything that they can to make sure there's enough coming in to meet demands.

WTXL ABC's Jada Williams was live Tuesay at a Publix.

On Monday people were flocking to the stores to stock up on supplies.

Jada Williams spoke to workers at a few grocery stores around town and learned that many stores had people lined up at the door ahead of the storm.

The Emergency Management Team at Walmart is together at the regional locations closely monitoring and making sure the stores are regularly receiving stock.

But for many shoppers the shipments don't seem to last any time at all.

Many people that Williams talked to say that they’ve seen more people this year compared to other years.

The Publix behind Williams even had employees inside hours ahead of opening time just to brave the crowds expected Tuesday.
