Interesting. In the last hour, the storm jogged towards Grand Bahama. Very bad for Grand Bahama, but it pulls the storm away from the Florida coast a little bit.
[UPDATE: 3 p.m. PDT - Direct hit by Hurricane Matthew's eye on Freeport, Grand Bahama. (Not sure they got the respite of the eye - just lots of tormented eyewall.) If the storm continues on this path, the east Florida coast might just luck out. None of the forecasts are that optimistic, but hurricanes can surprise!]
