  1. Tropical Storm Matthew formed near the Windward Islands from a tropical low pressure wave. This storm is currently somewhat unpredictable due to a potential interaction with a cold front and low pressure area that is moving off the US Southeast coast. However, we are suggesting that all persons along the Gulf Coast, all of Florida and the East Coast of the US monitor the progress of this storm for safety reasons and early planning. We are monitoring it's progress and will post updates as necessary.

  2. UPDATE - September 29: The National Hurricane Center has upgraded Matthew to Hurricane status. Multi Agency tracking projections are hinting that the low pressure area that is moving off the US East Coast will steer this system northerly and then northeast. However, the timing of this interaction is critical and we are still suggesting that everyone along the Gulf and East Coasts of the US monitor this Hurricane through the National Hurricane Center website URL in the post above.

  3. Hurricane Matthew Information September 30 at 3:45 AM EDT: This storm has quickly strengthened to Category 2 levels and will continue to strengthen to a Major Hurricane of at least Category 3 (core winds of at least 111 MPH). The storm is currently located in the central Caribbean and most official multi-agency tracking models are showing an abrupt turn to the north sometime on Saturday, October 01, with movement across southeastern Cuba, Haiti and into the southern Bahamas by early this coming week. Future tracking models, from most official agencies, are placing this Hurricane some distance off the eastern Florida coast by mid week and then are showing it interacting with much of the US East Coast. While it is still too early to make a more precise forecast, the National Hurricane Center in Miami is also suggesting that all persons in Florida and the US East Coast be monitoring official agency advisories. Any slight movement farther west over the next few days will involve more US coastline.

  4. Hurricane Matthew - info.

    Hurricane Matthew is heading for Jamaica, Southeastern Cuba and Haiti at this hour. Haiti will be receiving the worst of this storm. The people of Haiti have limited resources and are still recovering from the magnatude 7.0 earthquake in 2010. The potential for casualties in Haiti with Hurricane Matthew is very high. Please keep all persons in the path of this deadly hurricane in your prayers.

    Our own computer modeling and analysis of available data is placing the hurricane as a Category 3 or 4 in fairly close proximity to the entire east coast of Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas starting roughly mid day on Thursday and continuing through the weekend. Even the National Hurricane Center tracking projections are imprecise at this time due to a very complex weather system that will be affecting the direction of the hurricane.

    We are once again calling for EVERYONE along the East Coast of the US to be monitoring the progress of this deadly hurricane in local media and official sources and to have preparedness plans in place.

  5. Tropical Weather Situation Update 1 PM EDT Tuesday, October 4:

    The National Hurricane Center has named a Tropical Storm in the central Atlantic as "Nicole". This new storm may not be affecting the US in the near future and with the deadly effects of Major Hurricane Matthew currently taking place, we will not expend our resources on this new storm. We are simply mentioning Tropical Storm Nicole one time for now.

    For all persons in Florida and along the US East Coast, PLEASE monitor your local weather updates in media and listen carefully for any official advisories from your local Emergency Management Office regarding Hurricane Matthew.

  6. A Personal Message from Pastor Gary regarding Hurricane Matthew.

    5:15 PM EDT, Thursday, October 6, 2016:

    Our Tropical Storm Research Center predicted the current track of this deadly hurricane over 4-1/2 days ago. We have posted unofficial advisories on this Hurricane - and now the storm is just about to impact the US Coastline from Florida to North Carolina.

    We strongly recommended that ALL directives by Emergency Management agencies be followed and if persons were in mandatory evacuation areas, to move inland to designated areas.

    Now, I am posting one more message - just from me.

    If you have relatives, friends, colleagues or contacts that are in the primary impact zones in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina, that have decided to ride out the storm, PLEASE try to convince them that staying in an area where a Category 4, 140 MPH + wind field along the coast will be present, is not only putting THEIR lives in jeopardy, but they are also putting the lives of First Responders at risk. This type of storm has not been present in the USA southeast coast in over 8 years. This is a deadly serious situation and anyone who remains in the mandatory evacuation areas may not make it out alive. There is VERY little time left.

    May God bless the First Responder Teams and all those persons who HAVE moved inland in the face of this historic, deadly Category 4 Hurricane. Pray for those who have decided to ignore the evacuation orders and may possibly be killed.

  7. Named Storm Matthew has set records throughout it's long life. Unfortunately, those records are all very bad. The death count is nearing 1000 souls in the Caribbean, Bahamas and the United States. The human tragedy has been great with severe flooding taking an extreme toll on homes and businesses. Flooding in parts of three US states is still on-going and many streets, roads and Interstates are still closed due to trees down and high water. Power is out for approximately 1 million persons in 5 states and this will be slow to be repaired.

    This was the first Major Category landfalling hurricane in the US in several years and while some persons refused to follow evacuation orders, the majority of persons did travel inland to relative safety. Those who stayed in place in the face of this deadly hurricane were some of the one's who were killed. Perhaps now, those persons who stayed in the primary devastation areas and survived will think twice in the future and leave. The fact that they did stay in mandatory evacuation areas put first responders lives at risk, That is completely unacceptable.

    We wish to thank our viewers for following our 'unofficial' advisories and updates during this event. This is our final "Named Storm Matthew - 2016" post.
