In brief: More common in heat

Yes, heat stroke is more common in hotter areas.
As for treatment, if you have heat stroke you need to be in the hospital as it can be life threatening. There are measures you can take to prevent heat stroke such as exercises early in the morning when it is cooler and making sure that you are drinking plenty of water when exercising or working outside.

In brief: Heat stroke

Logic would dictate yes because there is more sunshine days in Florida.
Heat stroke can happen if you are out in the sun excessively - this can happen whenever there is sunshine (in the northeast this is in summer). THe key to is to keep hydrated and limit exposure to direct sunlight.
