List of disaster items you can buy tax-free this weekend

Hurricane season is here and to help Florida residents prepare, the state is making it cheaper to buy supplies.

This weekend is the disaster preparedness sales tax holiday.  That means you can pick up items to keep your family safe without paying tax on them.  The items range from flashlights and candles to generators.  (Full list of items/restrictions)
