States are getting spooked by the hurricane season

Florida agriculture commissioner Jim McGovern e-mailed a thank you message to Florida’s notoriously dangerous west coast recreational vehicle park on Monday after five people were killed there Saturday afternoon, not far from Interstate 95, by a barge carrying an Econoline van, according to the Associated Press. The I-95 shuttle service was unlicensed, but involved on a regular basis.
