Preparing for Hurricane Matthew 

As Hurricane Matthew continues to strengthen, Governor Rick Scott urges Floridians to evacuate. According to the latest projections, the west coast of Florida will not experience the same intensity as the east coast and central Florida. According to NBC News, meteorologist Bill Karins, this hurricane is going to take weeks to recover from.

"Sadly, this is one of the most dire predictions I've ever given for a hurricane forecast," NBC News meteorologist Bill Karins said. "The devastation that is left behind is going to take us weeks to clean up, and a lot of people are going to need help." 

Latest developments:

  • Landfall or near-landfall is forecast for Thursday night, between West Palm Beach and Cape Canaveral, Florida.

  • Winds of 145 mph are expected at landfall, although there's a small chance the winds could reach Category 5 strength.

  • Regardless of whether Florida gets a direct hit from Matthew, historic damage will occur Friday along the state's east coast. Florida Gov. Rick Scott warned the impact would be "catastrophic."
