The very humid and hot Florida weather through the year makes people drench in their sweat. Can people get heat stroke in it?

In brief: Yes.

Heat stroke can be had in just about any climate, but Florida is indeed hot.
Best protection is to avoid dehydration, eat and sleep well, acclimate yourself slowly to the environment and avoid alcohol and meds.

In brief: Yes. Heat Stroke!

Heat stroke is the most serious form of heat injury and is considered a medical emergency.
If you suspect that someone has heat stroke -- also known as sunstroke -- call an ambulance immediately and give first aid until paramedics arrive. http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/heat-stroke-symptoms-and-treatment#1
