MIAMI (AP) — Officials in Monroe County are monitoring the situation in Cuba following the death of Fidel Castro.
Spokeswoman Cammy Clark said in a news release on Saturday that the county’s emergency management agency has been in touch with Florida Gov. Rick Scott, the Coast Guard and state emergency management officials.
Monroe County’s Emergency Management Director Marty Senterfitt says at this time there are no indications of mass migration and no expectations that it will occur. He says they’ll continue monitoring “with due caution” to make sure the county is prepared if “anything unusual” happens.
Key West is just 90 miles from Cuba.
