Hurricane Matthew Leaves Hundreds Dead and Thousands Homeless
Hurricane Matthew has claimed more than 250 lives and the death toll is expected to climb. The East Coast of the United States is now dealing with the storm. Millions of people have been ordered to evacuate. Some have chosen to ride it out and the Governor of Florida says "this storm will kill you" as he urged folks to leave. Governor Rick Scott says "This is a monster. We haven't seen anything like this in my lifetime."
Scott has this message for folks who decide to try to ride out the storm:
I can not send first responders in to save your life. If you're on a barrier island on the East Coast, or if you're in a mobile home or you're in a place that sees flooding, you have got to get out. Getting to a shelter might be your only way to survive. Take care of your family.
