"This storm will kill you. Time is running out," Florida Gov. Rick Scott said during a press conference Thursday morning.
Hurricane Matthew has already killed over 260 people in Haiti. Now it's about to hit the U.S., and leaders are urging citizens to take the storm seriously.
"As of 6 a.m. this morning, 175,000 people have evacuated. That's not enough," South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said during a morning press conference. As of Thursday afternoon, Haley said 280,000 people had evacuated.
