 SUPPORT UKRAINE/DONATE NOW 

Hurricane Matthew is expected to regain strength, prompting evacuations as the storm threatens the East Coast of the US. CNN’s Chad Myers reports.

Impacts to Florida are expected late Wednesday or early Thursday. Florida Governor Rick Scott alerted Florida about the powerful Hurricane Matthew on Wednesday, saying no matter what path of the storm, “the effects will be devastating.“

States of emergency have been declared across Florida, parts of Georgia and North Carolina and in all of South Carolina, where Governor Nikki Haley is ordering more than a million people to move inland.

At a press conference Wednesday, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley said 250,000 people were being ordered to evacuate two coastal counties. The 250,000 figure does not include the number of tourists currently in South Carolina.
