Hurricane Matthew has been hurling across the Caribbean since Tuesday, wreaking havoc in Haiti, Cuba, The Bahamas, and is now steaming toward Florida with terrifying winds. It also threatens North Carolina and Georgia in the United States. Forecasters at the National Hurricane Centre are warning that large waves pushed by Hurricane Matthew could threaten lives and property hours before the Category 4 storm's eye nears the shore in Florida.
