All eyes are on Hurricane Matthew, which is expected to move up the Florida coast on Friday. The center of the storm is expected to stay some 20 miles offshore, sparing the coast cities the full force of its 120 mph winds. But forecasts are an imprecise science, and an unexpected wiggle in the track could cause real havoc there. If you are flying, check with your airline for cancellations and rescheduling arrangements. American Airlines has posted its policy on waiving change fees on its website. Waivers will depend on itinerary and travel dates.
Areas near the storm’s path may be subject to mandatory evacuation, so check local media for updated information regardless of one’s mode of travel.
Below are videos from CNN on the storm’s progress and the view from space as seen on the International Space Station via SpaceVideos.
