Hurricane Matthew, the storm that wreaked havoc in Haiti on Thursday, is swiping the coast of Florida and has forecasters worried for Jacksonville.

With winds reaching 120 miles per hour, this Category 3 storm has left almost 1 million without power.

While projections said the storm would go out to sea, some meteorologists now think that it will turn landwards Friday.

President Obama declared a state of emergency in Florida, South Carolina and Georgia, where many of the residents were ordered to evacuate.

Larry brings you the latest.
