Matthew starting to bring rain
Hurricane Matthew continues to be a monster storm that has and is pounding coastal communities to our south. Our thoughts and prayers go out to residents of Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina which have seen significant damage from win, rain and flooding. The storm continues to be a category 2 storm with winds near 100 MPH near the eye of the storm. While the storm has weakened from the interaction with land, it is still a dangerous storm causing significant damage in its path.
