Millions of Floridians are still without power and thousands more have been displaced by flooding or storm damage.

Bondi said the Home Depot trucks are carrying cases of water, plywood, generators and electrical cords, among other items.

The supplies, headed to South Florida, will be sold at normal prices.

Bondi's office said the home building company is shipping additional supplies in the coming days with more than a million bottles of water expected by the end of the week.

The state said Home Depot will sell the water for $2.97 a case.

Florida’s Price Gouging Hotline remains open during this emergency declaration covering all 67 counties.
