Hurricane Matthew continues slowly tracking northwest as Category 4 storm

The Category 4 Hurricane Matthew continues to move slowly on a northwesterly track through the Caribbean Sea, but is expected to turn toward the north Sunday night (Oct. 2) before bearing down on southwestern Haiti and Jamaica on Monday, according to the latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center. At 7 a.m. Sunday, Matthew’s center was within 340 miles of both Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, and Kingston, Jamaica. The storm was moving at approximately 5 mph, with maximum sustained winds clocked at 150 mph amid higher gusts. Forecasters do not expect Matthew to enter the Gulf of Mexico or pose a threat to Southeast Louisiana, but the storm is expected to impact weather along the eastern seaboard of the United States later next week.
