Hurricane Matthew made landfall in Haiti this morning with maximum sustained winds of up to 145 miles per hour. It's also bringing heavy rain — perhaps up to 25 inches in some places.

Matthew is expected to head north over the next several days and impact the east coast of the U.S. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson hears more from Greg Postel, hurricane specialist with The Weather Channel.
