\ Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad visited the Port of Pensacola as part of a statewide tour prior to the widening of the Panama Canal.\ \ Prasad is visiting Florida ports because of the potential economic boom officials hope the state gets after expansion of the canal is completed in 2014.\ \ 'As the Panama Canal ... expansion happens, the industry is going to rebalance,' he said. 'They are going to go where it makes sense, and if we are not there to capitalize on those changing dynamics we are going to lose out.'\ \ Fuente: Pensacola News Journal\ \ \ \
