Hurricane Matthew Makes Landfall

For the first time in 11 years (Hurricane Wilma, 2005) a major hurricane is making landfall in Florida. Category 4 Hurricane Matthew is at present spreading is flooding bands of rain and hurricane-force winds across the eastern coast of Florida. It is not certain as to whether the eye of the hurricane will run ashore, but the effects will certainly be felt across the sunshine state.

With 283 fatalities reported in Haiti, this deadly storm has triggered mandatory evacuations throughout southeastern states and governors are pleading with residents to head the warnings. Already 280,000 have been evacuated in South Carolina and millions more in Florida.
