One million bottles of water headed to Florida at fixed price

One million bottles of water are their way to Florida to help those in need following Hurricane Irma.

The water, once it has arrived at destinations across the state, will be sold at a fixed price of $2.97 a case to avoid price gouging.

The bottles are being hauled on 45 Home Depot tractor trailers, which are also carrying plywood, generators and electrical cords to South Florida and will also be sold at normal prices.

Florida officials promise more supplies by the end of the week.
