Coastal Residents Flee As Hurricane Matthew Threatens Florida


All right, we are tracking Hurricane Matthew this morning. That storm is hugging the Atlantic coast of Florida. Hundreds of thousands of people have lost power. More than 2 million people have been urged to evacuate. Dennis Feltgen of the National Hurricane Center says this storm is churning northward.

DENNIS FELTGEN: Any location that's in the hurricane warning area, particularly northeastern Florida and southeastern Georgia, need to take immediate action. Their time window for preparations is just about done.

GREENE: And we will bring you updates on the path of Hurricane Matthew all day long. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
