“Environmental conditions appear favorable for continued strengthening today and Matthew is expected to become an extremely dangerous category 4 hurricane while it moves over the northwestern Bahamas and approaches the east coast of Florida," the National Hurricane Center said Thursday.

The National Weather Service also is predicting the risk of hurricane-force winds for Broward County at 30 percent and Miami-Dade at 10-20 percent.

Florida Power & Light says up to 1.2 million of its 4.8 million customers are at risk of losing power.
