Hurricane Matthew: 1.5 million Floridians urged to ‘evacuate, evacuate, evacuate’
Some 1.5 million people in Florida are under evacuation orders by Gov. Rick Scott, but hundreds staying behind have huddled in shelters, some bringing along their pets. The storm has taken hundreds of lives in Haiti, but Hurricane Matthew seems to have passed over the Bahamas without any reported loss of life so far. NBC’s Craig Melvin reports for TODAY from Melbourne, Florida.
