Ernesto has lost so much strength over Cuba that it's barely a tropical storm. But it could become a hurricane again.
Some 400 miles of the Florida coast are under a hurricane watch.
Folks in the sunshine state are getting ready for Ernesto buying gas, water and other supplies while state officials ramp up emergency plans.
In the past two years, seven hurricanes have hit Florida.
And officials remember all too well that Katrina was only a Category One hurricane when it passed through the state last year.
