Gov. Scott sends assistance to communities impacted by Hurricane Matthew in Ga., S.C. and N.C.

Florida Governor Rick Scott sent 18 semi-trucks Tuesday to communities affected by Hurricane Matthew in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. 

Those trucks are filled meal kids and heading to six cities up the coast. Those disaster relief kits are headed to Savannah, Ga., Charleston and Columbia, S.C., and Raleigh, Fayetteville and Elizabeth City, N.C.

Local food banks and non-profits there will take care of distributing the meals to affected families. 

The meal kits were purchased by Florida ahead of Hurricane Matthew and will be given to states that need the resources to help their residents.

Four truckloads each are headed to Charleston, Raleigh and Savannah. Two truckloads each are headed to Columbia, Fayetteville and Elizabeth City.

"I have reached out to the governors of these states to let them know Florida stands ready to help them," the governor said in a news release.
