More than two million people along the southeastern coast of the U.S. are being urged to evacuate their homes ahead of Hurricane Matthew.
Just to give you an idea of how strong this storm is, Matthew is a Category 3 storm with winds of 130 mph when it passed through the Bahamas and Haiti and claimed at least 280 lives (264 in Haiti alone) this week according to AP.
The National Hurricane Center says Matthew is packing 140 mile-per-hour winds with higher gusts as it heads for Florida, and it will move over or close to the east coast of the Florida peninsula through Friday night.
People in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina are being urged to evacuate and more evacuations may be ordered today. Several artists with scheduled tour stops in the area have been forced to cancel or reschedule.
More than 15-hundred flights have been canceled so far because of the storm and some college football games will also be affected.
Just as this monster storm builds, a creepy satellite photo from the Weather Channel seems to have given the storm a monster image.
The image shows the hurricane through an infrared camera lens as the hurricane made landfall in Haiti according to CNN.
It had been tweaked to accentuate the hurricane’s eye and it ended up looking more like something from a horror movie.
