Hurricane Matthew

Scribe:  Lucy Osbourne


Hurricane Matthew rolled over Caribbean islands as it makes its way toward Haiti, Jamaica and Cuba with an expected arrival of Monday according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami.  It’s expected to dump more than 25 inches of rain on Southern Haiti while the Dominican Republic and Eastern Cuba are anticipating 10-20 inches of the wet stuff. 

The category 4 storm has top sustained winds near 130 mph and is listed as the most powerful storm in the Atlantic in almost ten years.  Haitian families are being asked to stock up on food and water and evacuation for those residing in high risk areas. 

Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness was reported saying that his “nation was braced for the storm, which could be the most severe for his nation since Gilbert killed more than 40 Jamaicans and dumped more than 30 inches of rain in some areas in 1988.”
