you have been incredibly busy and for folks just getting >> devastating news for florida. we have been talk about it between west palm beach and jacksonville. they have never received a landfalling hurricane between category 4 and 5 status so this could be devastating, bringing 4 to 8 inches, possibly isolate location of 12 inches of rain. then you add in wind of 145 miles per hour and is going to be devastating in florida.
why the east coast of florida is under a hurricane warning, extending through the bahamas and hurricane warning extending into southern georgia, hurricane watch for savannah through charleston, south carolina. let's get to the latest, wind of 125 miles per hour, winds at 155, is making a direct line for nassau in the bahamas at 12 miles per hour. the newest full advisory will be at 11:00 a.m. with an intermittent advisory at 8:00. we will be sure to pass it on as we get it. 55 lewisburg. raleigh, 60 and later today

carolina. as the storm continues to move southeast, it doesn't look like it will impact us -- as big, certainly. hurricane matthew has been a major hurricane longer than any other storm in october in 53 years. a major hurricane is category 3 or stronger. at onent category 4 and is expected to restrengthen this afternoon. right now it's a category 3 storm heading for nassau and is 60 miles from nassau, moving northwest about 12 miles per hour and could be a category 4 as early as 2 and will approach the east coast of florida. it could move over port canaveral. we have talked about the devastation expected on the coast.
people but isolated spots could receive 12 inches of rain. the storm surge could be between 3 and 6 feet and could rise as much as 9 feet in spots. there's the southeasterly turn that we like to see, starting sunday morning as a category 1 storm so as strong is, winds at 90 miles per hour so really the only part of north carolina around wilmington no longer include counties in north carolina. yes, it could wobble left to right but has been the trend for 24 hours and the confidence is growing into the next day or so and really into crunch time
