What key personal and financial documents should you bring with you in an evacuation? It's important to have a plan.
Evacuations are under way in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina ahead of Hurricane Matthew's expected landfall in Florida Thursday. Forecasters say there's a small chance the Category 4 storm could strengthen to a Category 5 by the time it arrives.
The Florida Division of Emergency Management called the storm "life-threatening," and Governor Rick Scott warned of its "catastrophic" impact. He urged the estimated 1.5 million Florida residents in evacuation zones to follow evacuation orders.
"Do not surf. Do not go on the beach. This will kill you," Gov. Scott said at a press conference Thursday. "There is no reason not to leave."
