Hurricane Matthew has Inched Closer to Florida and We are Now in the Cone

By Jeff Lichtenstein

Governor Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency in every county in Florida ahead of Hurricane Matthew. “Hurricane Matthew is a life-threatening Category 4 hurricane and we must all take it seriously,” Scott said. “We are preparing for the worst, but hoping for the best.”

According to the Palm Beach Post, Hurricane Matthew has weakened to 115mph winds this morning, but is expected to regain strength as it moves over the very warm, shallow waters of the Bahamas.

The National Hurricane Center predicts it will reach 130mph, a strong Category 4 storm, as it approaches Nassau early Thursday morning. Matthew should maintain that 130mph wind speed as it closes in on Florida’s east coast and comes closest to Palm Beach County late Thursday night into Friday morning.


If you need any furniture moved into your house, now would be the time to do so.  From past experience, it’s best to bring anything inside, as items left outside can turn into projectiles. If you are in town, it’s best to get cash, supplies, and fill up tanks now. If you want to leave town, it’s best to leave town because I-95 and the Turnpike will get backed up. The worst part of it is after the storm, as most of the restaurants are closed, with lack of power, and no air conditioning.
