'Monster' Hurricane Matthew Bears Down on Florida After Killing 283 in Haiti. Obama has already declared a state of emergency for Florida and South Carolina.

Hurricane Matthew is being called "a monster" and truly the proverbial "storm of the century" as it heads toward Florida's east coast.

Matthew has already left hundreds dead in the Caribbean, including at least 283 on Haiti.

As of late Thursday, Matthew was pounding the western end of Grand Bahama Island and is moving northwest with a direct hit on Florida expected by early Friday.

It is a powerful Category 4 storm with top sustained winds of 210 kilometers per hour.

Florida officials are calling anyone who decided not to evacuate "fools" and "idiots," and cannot stress enough that this is an extremely dangerous storm with a potentially disastrous impact on the state.

President Barack Obama has already declared a state of emergency for Florida and South Carolina.
