(CLICK ORLANDO) — ORLANDO, Fla. – People around Central Florida were already experiencing a shortage of supplies at grocery stores on Monday.

Although days away from potential impact, the current projected path shows Hurricane Irma possibly hitting Florida as a category 4 storm.

On Tuesday, shoppers lined up outside several stores, including Costco in Altamonte Springs, for a chance to get supplies, including water, batteries, food and more.

“(It was) a little bit of a pandemonium,” shopper Diane Williams said. “Getting here was worse than being inside. It’s just that everybody is panicked, so they are preparing, which is wise, but it’s just, like, crazy.”
