    Hi Carla,

    South Florida will experience a partial eclipse and will not experience totality. The Sun will look as if a bite were taken from its disk. In W. Palm Beach, the eclipse will be about 82% total. In Fort Myers, it will be about 78%. There is an interactive map at the link below, you can click on your location to find the exact times the eclipse will begin and end and when the eclipse will be at its maximum.
