hard to forecast. as we go gur they are vulnerable beaches in the carolinas. storm surge and flooding will be an issue. the days of hurricane force winds that could potentially effect the coastline then perhaps make a recurve. that's five days out. right now 120 mile per hour sustained winds is literally offshore off cape canaveral ladies. i am seeing hurricane force winds of over 80 miles per hour along the coastline. again the storm surge. that's one of the biggest threats from this. 6 to 11 feet. that would be devastating for northern florida as well as georgia. storm surge, flooding, winds, we are not done with matthew yet. >> i have an aunt in north carolina keeping an eye on it as

worst as hurricane matthew marches closer by the minute. >> streets underwater this morning and the worst is still yet to come. >> leland vittert is live in daytona where we could see catastrophic flooding. leland, earlier, strong winds whipping you around. i can't see you yet. what's the latest? >> reporter: heather, we had to put our camera crew inside the car because of the way the winds and the water have gotten out here. you talked about the strong winds. this is the aftermath just the beginning of the beginning of some of the damage here from matthew. you see this is the roof over what was a gas station or is a gas station without their roof. came toppling down here. this gas station is one of the many that ran out of fuel as everyone tried to get ready for hurricane matthew. we're about a block off the beach and already the big issue we've talked about is the storm surge has begun. that's the water that's now coming down the street here. and then rushing all the way
over to the intercoastal. you can get a sense here the water flowing over, how much worse this is going to be. we're right at low tide. wee haven't gotten anywhere close to the eye of this storm. so the water that could end up here is about 20 or 30 miles south of us being pushed by matthew up. the winds will bring it on shore. the winds have picked up substantially now. certainly well over 40 miles an hour. everything up there is horizontal and this sheet metal is now blowing around. that's what's going to be the real danger after the storm is all the debris, the downed power lines, those things left. >> back to you. >> a real trooper out there. we've been wearing flipflops. the camera crew is inside the car filming. >> you can see the wipers there covered. we did that same thing in 1998. i was tell leland, he bepter be careful.
