UPDATED 6:09am Tuesday: FGGAM Friend, Meteorologist Ken Widelski tells us:

5 am EDT from the National Hurricane Center. Matthew remains a powerful category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale. Pressure 934mb/145 mph. Center near the southwest peninsula of Haiti moving north. Haiti and eastern Cuba will get battered today, then all of the Bahamas tonight and Wednesday.

Model consensus now tightly clustered either along or just off the Florida east coast. From there a turn north then northeast along or inland of the Carolinas. Significant impacts possible including very strong winds, surge, flooding rain, and severe beach erosion. Large uncertainties for the Middle Atlantic and Northeast. Questions about timing of a cold front and capture of the hurricane will remain for the next few days. Delmarva to New York to Boston to Maine need to keep a close watch.

Pastor Dewey Note: We have reports of many missionary friends in Haiti. Please be in constant prayer for the safety of all and that the hurricane diminishes.


Dangerous category 4 Hurricane Matthew will continue to churn north through the central Caribbean over the next 48 hours. Matthew will likely bring destructive winds, deadly floods and an impressive storm surge to Haiti. Haiti will be on the right side of the storm, which will bring some of the worst conditions. From there, high confidence Matthew will rake through the Bahamas. Matthew could potentially impact the southeast/mid Atlantic U.S coast. Model guidance still shows uncertainty with the strength of the Bermuda ridge and the speed of the approaching trough from the Midwest. lots of solutions out there…some of which are still out to sea. Beyond day 5, confidence is low.

Let us all be in constant prayer for the safe keeping of all! In Jesus name, Amen! We did not sleep much last night. We are praying for this world we live in.
