Florida closes schools, orders evacuations as Matthew nears


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Florida canceled classes along its Atlantic coastline and theme parks kept a watchful eye as Hurricane Matthew picked up speed heading to the East Coast.

Officials in central Florida's Brevard County are ordering residents on barrier islands and in flood-prone areas to evacuate Wednesday in advance of the powerful hurricane. Residents who live in mobile and manufactured homes also are being ordered to leave.

In South Carolina, Gov. Nikki Haley contemplated whether to order some 1 million people to leave the coast and planned to release details of her plan Wednesday morning.
