Florida governor orders 1.5 mn to evacuate ahead of hurricane

Some 1.5 million people are under evacuation orders in Florida in preparation for mighty Hurricane Matthew to make a direct hit on the state, the governor said Thursday.

Governor Rick Scott described a possibly catastrophic and deadly scenario of huge storm surges, fierce winds, the ocean eating up beaches and other havoc from the storm.

"Evacuate, evacuate, evacuate," Scott told a news conference. "Time is running out."
