Florida authorities sounded alarms not heard in years as Hurricane Matthew weakened early Friday but stayed on a path for the state’s east coast.

In a 2 a.m. ET bulletin, the National Hurricane Center said it had been downgraded to a Category 3 storm but warned that the “eye of extremely dangerous” storm was moving closer to the east coast of Florida.

The first band of rain from Matthew arrived in Florida on Thursday, ahead of a projected landfall — or near-landfall — between West Palm Beach and Cape Canaveral that Gov. Rick Scott warned would be “catastrophic.”

“There is no reason not to leave,” Scott grimly warned as the storm, which killed at least 128 people across the Caribbean, moved ever closer.
