Hurricane Matthew

 

Officials warn of Hurricane Matthew dangers; storm eyes South Florida coast


PUBLISHED Tue, October 04, 2016 - 3:01pm EDT


Hurricane Matthew, the most powerful Atlantic storm in about a decade, stormed its way across the Caribbean on Tuesday, hitting the western part of Haiti. Matthew now threatens the US Coast, as it is expected to make a direct hit on Florida or other parts of the east coast. Florida is already feeling the effects of the storm, as residents are raiding grocery store shelves to prepare themselves for the storming conditions.

The Category 4 storm hit Haiti just before sunrise, where many people live along the coast in shacks of wood or simple concrete blocks. At least seven people have died from Matthew's march through the Caribbean. The storm is headed north over the Bahamas and is predicted to hit parts of Florida by Thursday night.
