FHP Monitoring Heavy Traffic Amid South Florida Evacuations

Florida Highway Patrol troopers are monitoring the high volume of traffic heading north on Florida's Turnpike as people evacuate South Florida.

In a news release, the highway patrol said extra troopers, road rangers and wreckers will be on the roadways to help drivers whose vehicles have become disabled.

The agency says disabled vehicles left on the shoulders of the highways will be towed staring Thursday morning to make it easier for emergency workers who are trying to reach crash victims.

Authorities have reported that there are no planned closures on any of the major highways, and that Turnpike officials will continue using cameras along the road to monitor conditions.

Anyone needed help can call *FHP (*347) to get assistance.
