TROPICS:   Dangerous hurricane Matthew has intensified just south of Nassau in  the Bahamas with top winds up to 125 mph, Matthew is expected to  intensify further as it moves through the northwestern Bahamas and then toward the Florida’s east coast by tonight, the storm is then expected to parallel the east coast of Florida reaching the South Carolina coast by Saturday night and then move further offshore.  A hurricane of this magnitude has never affected the entire east coast of Florida in recorded history.  It is very difficult to forecast if and where the eye of the storm will be parallel to the coast, a track offshore will lessen the impacts but if the eye moves just inland it will cause major destruction to those areas.

 

Have a safe day!

    Glad your hurricane experience was nothing like Haiti & the Bahamas are seeing… Shari’s sister & brother-in-law have lived in St Augustine for more than 50 yrs and we have been hit with more direct shots than they (which they always remind us) … hopefully they will pack up their cats and go visit John’s brother in Tallahassee… – but they have always been ‘ride out the storm people…”
