Science| | By Matthew D'Onofrio
An ominous satellite image of the storm looking like a skeleton was captured during its pass over western Haiti. It was posted on Tuesday morning and has since gained thousands of shares across numerous media channels. at least 11 people have died because of the vicious category 4 hurricane. The last country to be affected was Cuba, hammered with high winds, rough rain, and storm surge flooding. Currently, Matthew is battering the Bahamas and will head toward southern Florida next, followed by a less serious encounter with the coasts of Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina later this week. Florida and South Carolina have closed schools and are ready with evacuation plans for the first hurricane to hit South Florida since Hurricane Wilma. Despite the spooky image, other areas along the East Coast have little fear as the storm will subside before reaching their coasts.
