Hurricane Matthew
 
Forecasters are warning that the major hurricane that has caused at least 11 deaths in the Caribbean this week is now taking aim at the Bahamas.

Strong winds, heavy rains and a dangerous storm surge are starting to spread over the Bahamas as menacing Hurricane Matthew approaches.

And it's possible that Matthew could come very near Florida's east coast by tomorrow night.

Matthew's damage in Haiti yesterday isn't fully known yet because of washed out roads and cut power and phone lines.
