Hurricane Matthew did not make landfall on the Florida East Coast overnight, and the strongest winds remained offshore. However, Matthew’s rain bands and tropical storm force winds will continue to affect a large portion of the Florida Peninsula from Lake Okeechobee north today and overnight, with conditions improving from south to north moving forwardis moving near or over the east coast of the Florida peninsula through tonight, and near or over the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina on Saturday. Impacts include widespread power outages and associated communications issues. Refer to official information sources for information regarding your area. There are tropical storm warnings and watches in place along the east coast. Current long range projections indicate a potential loop and second impact to Florida.   Please follow official reporting from the National Hurricane Center (http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/#MATTHEW) for the current forecast.
