BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – National Hurricane Center has upgraded Tropical Storm Matthew to Hurricane Matthew. 

Currently, the hurricane is making its way through the Caribbean Islands.

Max sustained winds have been recorded at 75 mph on Thursday and the system is moving to the West at 17 mph.

Projections show the hurricane will take a direct turn to the North in the coming days and hit Jamaica by Monday morning.

“It will most likely strengthen into a Category 2 hurricane. After that, it will be close to Cuba this weekend. From there, it is too early to tell where it will go. We are in the heart of the hurricane season, so we need to pay close attention to this storm.” Channel 9 Meteorologist Brian Shields said.
