'The worst is still to come': Hurricane Matthew pummels Florida coast with 100mph winds and flash floods as more than 800,000 lose power

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3826209/A-state-emergency-declared-North-South-Carolinas-power-outages-reported-Florida-police-use-bullhorns-urging-people-flee-powerful-Hurricane-Matthew-hits.html

    Hurricane Matthew is currently 40 miles east-southeast of St Augustine and 60 southeast of Jacksonville
    It has pummeled Florida since early Friday with heavy rain and strong winds
    Downgraded from a Category 4 to 3 - but that only means a reduction of winds from 130mph to 120mph
    Powerful storm claimed at least 842 lives in Haiti alone after it ripped through the Caribbean
    A woman in her late 50s died in St Lucie, Florida, after she suffered a heart attack
    Orlando's world-famous theme parks - Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld - all closed
    President Barack Obama has warned it is still a 'dangerous hurricane', especially for Jacksonville
    Could bring a storm surge of up to 11 feet in some areas and drop up to 14 inches on the Carolinas
    Heavy rainfall could trigger major flooding in Jacksonville, Georgia and South Carolina
    South Carolina Gov. Haley has warned residents of tiny island Daufuskie 'it is going to be underwater'
    Hurricane warning has also been extended to North Carolina
    Gov Rick Scott of Florida says about 800,000 have been left without power; millions more could suffer 
    Despite the dire warnings, many brave - or stupid - people opted to stay behind and party

Storm was downgraded to Category 1 on Saturday morning but hurricane-force winds remain a threat
Tides in Charleston rose as high as 9 feet and rose past the historic Battery seawall
Matthew made landfall in McCleallanville, 50 minutes from Charleston, just after 11am on Saturday 
 Most powerful hurricane to threaten the Atlantic Seaboard in more than a decade is set to make landfall
Six people died in Florida as a result of the aggressive storm which also killed almost 900 in Haiti
