Dangerous Hurricane Matthew is evil and formed into a monster skull.
It is now heading to the Bahamas after forcing thousands to evacuate in the Caribbean.
After weaving through the Windward Passage between Haiti and Cuba on Tuesday and Tuesday night, Matthew will turn northwestward across the Bahamas through Thursday.
Some fluctuation in strength will occur with Matthew as the hurricane is influenced by the mountainous islands of Hispaniola and Cuba in the short-term and then less-favorable atmospheric conditions over the northern Bahamas later on.
Matthew remains a very dangerous hurricane.
Matthew made its first landfall on the Haiti Tiburon Peninsula during Tuesday morning, before making a second landfall on the eastern tip of Cuba during Tuesday evening.
From Haiti to the eastern tip of Cuba, the threat for flooding rainfall, mudslides, destructive winds and dangerous surf will gradually lessen as Matthew moves northwestward into Thursday.
Matthew has already been responsible for a number of fatalities across the Caribbean. The Bahamas are likely to be in the direct path of Matthew from Wednesday into Friday.
The Turks and Caicos will also face significant impacts by the hurricane as it passes to their west.
The slow-moving nature of the hurricane will translate to days rather than hours of pounding surf, high winds and heavy rain on the Bahamas.
In addition to life-threatening conditions, major property damage and inundation is likely due to powerful winds, storm surge and flash flooding.
A storm surge of 10-15 feet can occur, along with the potential for a foot or more of rain on some of the Bahamas.
