already killing one person there.. after causing more than 280 deaths in the caribbean. matthew has weakened to a category 3 storm this morning.. but still 2 million people have been warned to leave their homes on the east coast. governor rick scott/(r) florida: "this storm will kill you. time is running out. we don't have that much time left." chief michael chitwood/daytona beach police dept.: "we're not going to be able to save you.." but despite all the repeated calls to leave.. some people are staying put. authorities say a few emergency calls have already come in.. but in most cases there is nothing they can do until the storm passes. "florida power and light" reports that about 95- thousand customers are already without electricity.. and authorities are expecting mass power outages.. that could take days or even weeks to restore. les krifaton has been tracking the storm.. he joins us now with the latest. great weather in store for us friday

images from the people affected by hurricane matthew is heart-wrenching... and it impacts us so much, making many of us want to donate right away. but as fox5's alyssa deitsch tells us now... it's important to know who you're giving your money to yeah... and we're not trying to scare you out of donating-- because there are a lot of legitimate organizations.
7:04 am
efforts are already underway here locally to help those on the east coast. and that includes this woman... rockee nelson... with the red cross. she getting ready to drive this van to the east coast this week to help the millions of people affected by the storm. she says she doesn't know yet where she'll end up-- florida, georgia, or south carolina. but one thing she does know-- people there need legitimate agencies like the red cross right now. "people need a lot of help... i can't even imagine what to expect. sadly... not every organization is out to help others. and the b-b-b is offering some advice to make sure your donations are going where you want them to. so you need to do your homework... don't just donate to whatever your friends sare sharing on facebook... or crowdfunding websites-- those are prime spots for scams to spread. and be wary of claims that 100 percent of donations help victims-- all charities have some sort of fundraising and

costs. we see a ton of charities pop up after every natural disaster... so check out "charity navigator.org" they've done the homework already for you-- we have a link to that on our website fox5vegas.com. and when in doubt... give to well-known legitimate organizations like the american red cross... the salvation army.. and unicef. the volunteers that alyssa was talking about are driving.. because flying to the southeast is pretty much not an option at this point. 13 airports have shut down because of the weather.. including the fort lauderdale- hollywood international airport.. and the orlando international airport. most are expected to re- open tomorrow. nationwide-- nearly 38-hundred

"i understand donald trump was here earlier and in addition to not knowing how to say the name of the state.." "every time donald trump speaks it's you know women's are pig slobs dogs disgusting muslim should be treated a

disabled reporter" kaine also talked about his support for unions and plans for immigration.. he says he does not want this country to be a "deportation nation." kaine has another rally scheduled this morning at sun city macdonald ranch. meantime.. thousands are now calling for a boycott of the local businesses that sat down with trump. about 30 hispanic business owners met with the republican nominee earlier this week.. and now some o those owners say they are being harrassed -- by phone -- and even getting death threats. still.. we did see some customers patronizing a restaurant because its owners supported trump. the deadline to register by mail is this weekend.. and so is the next presidential debate. clinton and trump will go head-to- head again this sunday, october 9-th at washington university in saint louis. then pretty soon they will make their way here.. the third and final debate will be at u-n-l-v on wednesday
