There’s A Major Hurricane Off Shore Of North Carolina And It Could Be Deadly

In the past week, North Carolina residents have experienced rainy and stormy weather that has kept us all alert. As of today, Tropical Storm Matthew is now officially Hurricane Matthew, and a few hours ago it was rated as a Category 3 in the Central Caribbean. While this may seem like a general cause for concern, Hurricane Matthew’s similarities to a deadly hurricane that occurred back in 1954 are making residents fear the worst.
