CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) – The Latest on Hurricane Matthew (all times local):
The steady march of Hurricane Matthew has left more than 1 million customers in Florida without power.
State officials released updated totals on Friday that showed that the powerful Category 3 storm had knocked out electricity over a wide stretch of the state’s eastern coast. Most of the customers in Flagler and Volusia County – the home to Daytona Beach – were without power. Other hard hit areas include Brevard and Indian River counties.
The storm was strong enough to also cause outages in Central Florida. More than 100,000 who live in the Orlando area are without electricity.
