Some of Florida’s local stations are live streaming their wall-to-wall coverage of Hurricane Matthew’s approach for viewers on their Facebook pages.
“WFOR will stream live coverage of Hurricane Matthew on www.cbsmiami.com and on www.Facebook.com/CBSMiami as long as we are in continuous coverage on air,” a station spokesperson told TVSpy. While WESH told us “We have no plans to stop our coverage.”
WOFL told us its been using Facebook live for part of its newscasts, most of the news conferences, and weather updates from its meteorologists.
Hurricane Matthew is expected to make landfall tonight between West Palm Beach and Cape Canaveral, Florida with winds as high as 145 mph expected. Evacuations are underway in Florida, South Carolina and Georgia.
President Obama declared a state of emergency in Florida while Governor Rick Scott activated the National Guard.
“This is going to kill people,” said Scott speaking of the hurricane.
