Hurricane Matthew, the fiercest Caribbean storm in nearly a decade, strengthened as it barreled toward the southeastern United States Thursday after killing at least 140 people, mostly in Haiti, on its deadly northward march. As Matthew blew through the northwestern Bahamas Thursday en route to Florida's Atlantic coast, it became an "extremely dangerous" hurricane carrying winds of 225 kph, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.That made it a Category 4 hurricane and it was likely to remain so as it approached the United States, where it could either take direct aim at Florida or brush along the state's coast through Friday night, the center said.As of Thursday morning, more than 3,000 people were being housed in 60 shelters in Florida, Scott said.
