On Friday, Gov. Ron DeSantis said restoring running water in Lee County is a top priority.

"They had a water main break for the county utility. That means that the county does not have water at this point," DeSantis said.

After requesting support from FEMA, the Army Corps of Engineers were supplied to help fix the issue.

DeSantis commended the team for being on the ground hours after being called to help.

According to DeSantis, the Army Corps of Engineers is evaluating the damage, but it's unclear how extensive the work will be to restore water to the area.

"It may require more of a rebuild, it may require more short-term remediation," DeSantis said.

A boil advisory is currently in effect for Lee County for people with running water.
