(CNN) - Following some controversy over price gouging, 7-Eleven is sending free water to Florida.
The company posted on Twitter on Friday that it is sending free water to three cities in Florida in preparation for Hurricane Irma's landfall.
Bottled water has been sent to Port Orange, Orlando and Oldsmar to be given out to residents.
In the post, the convenience store chain said trucks with white banners should be arriving Saturday morning. The banners say "free water" and have the 7-Eleven logo.
The announcement came after the company spent several hours replying on social media to complaints about individual stores in South Florida selling bottled water for outrageous prices.
In one reply to a complaint, 7-Eleven said it is "actively seeking to end" the problem.
