the clinton campaign brings another heavy hitter here to our area. right now at 11:00 we are tracking hurricane matthew. it is raking florida's atlantic coast. so far the eye has not made land fall. it knocked out power to nearly 600,000 homes. police say a woman died after having a heart attack. emergency personnel had to stop operations due to wind gusts. good morning. i'm vai sikahema.
people are hunkered down waiting for pelting rain to pass by them. we have a look at conditions at daytona beach. >> reporter: sunrise but no slow down on matthew's assault on our state. >> this is not over. >> reporter: the eye expected to press dangerously bringing the heaviest rain and raising the risk and fears of catastrophic storm surge. >> we are very concerned about the storm surge and the worst effects are likely to still come. >> reporter: the massive storm bringing massive winds and damaging rain. still at times wind gusts were so strong first responders had to get themselves to safety. power lines ripped from their polls across the region.
hundred of thousands left without power. many are riding out the storm in shelters. hundreds of pets housed with their own e still unsure when they will be able to go home. hurricane matthew expected to skirt the coast into the weekend. meteorologists say offshore doesn't mean any less dangerous. >> if you're in an area that you are told to evacuate i want to personally plea with you to get out right now. >> reporter: millions still at risk as hurricane matthew churns in the atlantic. daytona beach, florida. that explosion is part of the reason why it knocked down power lines and caused transformers to explode.
president obama reminded people in florida to remain vigilant. >> i want to emphasize to everyone that this is still a dangerous hurricane. the potential for flooding, loss of life and severe property damage continue to and people need to follow the instructions of their local officials. and glenn "hurricane" schwartz is tracking the storm and has the latest on where it is going. what can you tell us. >> yethe center of it managed t stay offshore but it is very close. the eye is now 30 miles east of daytona beach. so all you need is a slight jog to the left. right now it's hadded that way.
that much of a difference is between getting an actual land fall with the biggest storm surge possible or staying over the water. you can see the track staying over water. here is the florida coast. it is just moving parallel so far. the problem is that the coastline starts to curve. this storm, if it continues moving north now you're threatening georgia and south carolina. 120 miles per hour winds. the pressure is up a little bit. that's a good thing. it's not strengthening. and here is the future cast showing the center staying just offshore but tremendous rains coming into georgia and south carolina. 10 to 15 inches of rain.
flooding rains across the area. this is grazing daytona beach. this is right near jacksonville beach this afternoon and then right over charleston tonight. so we may be having more problems in south carolina than we had in florida with the way this thing is tracking. we'll have a complete update on the track of that and our weekend in just a few minutes. all right. we'll see you then. thousands of flights are cancelled down south due to the storm. that means our area is dealing with those changes. miami flight stopped yesterday. orlando stopped operations at 8:00 last night. the airport does not expect to resume flight schedules until tomorrow. miami homing to resume flights today. some peoples decided to cut their florida vacation short. >> i was scared because i never
experienced something like that. i want today stay and see what would happen. it was interesting. >> we learned palm beach international airport is now back open. if you had plans to fly to florida there weekend check to see if your flight is still on. to give you an idea of how devastating this hurricane can be officials in haiti confirm 283 people are dead. they are helping people in the hardest hit places to clear away the damage from the storm. they expect the death toll to rise as they reach more remote areas. in the bahamas clean up is beginning. complete roads washed away and some people still trapped in their homes. a look from above in cuba showing the scale of destruction. you can see a collapsed bridge over a swollen river. many homes without roofs.
matthew moved through there on monday. no deaths reported in cuba. stay with nbc 10 so you can track the path of hurricane matthew. it gets you severe weather alerts and your first alert neighborhood forecast. let's bring in francesca ruscio for more on what's happening on the roads. what are you seeing out there? >> it is acting up around montgomery drive. it is a bit of a slow of a crawl. we are in the 40s right now. it will take you 17 minutes. i do have an accident in cheltenham. we are also seeing delays on 611. you'll want to take alternate routes. this is route 41 at route 42. speeds are in the 50s.

south carolina or stay offshore? i'll have that coming up. we'll tell you the winner of the nobel peace prize, what he did and how he earned the honors. i spent many years as a nuclear missile launch officer. if the president gave the order we had to launch the missiles, that would be it. i prayed that call would never come.

might end up getting hit harder than florida's because the hand fall is very important. then it starts making that right turn and then makes the loop. it's weakening by the time it does that. the south turn, the west turn into the gulf of mexico. again, it is very weak by then. 67 in delaware. lots of sunshine here. there are clouds coming up from the south. we have a front coming in from the west. that's going to combine to add moisture here. as we look through saturday in the morning we are generally dry but the moisture does invecreas as we go through the afternoon. the question is how fast that
