crucial for haiti. the forecast is a worst-case scenario bringing hurricane force winds to haiti tomorrow to the early part of the day on tuesday. the radius of the winds extends out 25 miles from the center. if this were to shift west, that is it. haiti doesn't get any winds over 74 miles an hour, but the track is crucial. matthew is a powerful storm but kind of a tiny storm, similar to what we and passing on cuba on tuesday and thursday and friday over the bahamas mp where it goes from there is still anyone's guess. we have some models bendsing this toward the u.s. east coast, some taking it right up the east coast and some curving it more harmlessly to the atlantic. and it has been trending more out in the atlantic today. so that could be good news for us. either way our forecast here as we head to friday and saturday and early part of next week,
