Right now, Hurricane Matthew is making landfall on Florida. It is predicted to be the only full strength hurricane to hit the US since 2005 and possibly the worst to hit the Space Coast ever. A state of emergency for Florida and South Carolina has already been declared.
Since starting Chasing Atlantis, we’ve made nearly a dozen trips down to the Space Coast and have gotten to know wonderful people who live and work in the area. They are battened down tonight waiting for the full wrath of the storm. We want them all to know that our thoughts are with them as Matthew makes landfall.
Fore more info, there is a great Q and A on Hurricane Matthew with veteran reporter, John Schwartz who covered Katrina.
