It isn t yet clear how close of a brush the United States is going to have with powerful, dangerous Hurricane Matthew.
What is clear, in the minds of meteorologists tracking the storm, is that the entire East Coast needs to be on alert.
Matthew is currently unleashing Category 4 fury over Haiti, after which it s expected to meander north across eastern Cuba and the Bahamas.
After its run-in with Cuba, Klotzbach says, exceptionally warm waters and favorable upper level winds over the Bahamas look reasonably conducive to the storm staying strong.
