6 p.m. EDT - Very-nearly 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.)
Well, tonight it looks like the storm is slowly gliding into greater and greater contact with the shore (I see it was raining in Tampa). The nudge in the storm's path this afternoon helped reduce impacts in the Palm Beach area. I was hoping the storm might nudge again, and save Floridians a lot of trouble, but there's no sign of it yet. It looks right now like the center of the storm might come ashore this morning around Cape Canaveral - the closest passage to Tampa forecast so far.
