Video from Florida’s east coast shows the damage left behind by Hurricane Matthew. The video above shows flooded Jacksonville streets, the storm surging over St. Augustine’s sea wall and water rushing into a Palm Coast house.

See more detailed video below of the waves crashing into that Palm Coast home. The looped video shows flooding in the house. You can hear a fire alarm going off in background.

Meanwhile, video from Cocoa shows a boat on its side. It’s mostly submerged. Look at the video blow.

Throughout Florida, the steady march of Hurricane Matthew has left more than 1 million customers 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.]

In South Carolina, communities are imposing curfews as the winds and rains of Hurricane Matthew approach the state. The worse of the storm is expected to move in overnight and Matthew is expected to be just off Charleston about daybreak as a Category 2 hurricane with 100 mph winds.

Charleston, North Charleston, and Mount Pleasant are all imposing curfews from midnight Friday through 6 a.m. on Saturday. Officials say they don’t want people driving or walking around while law officers and emergency workers have to deal with issues related to the storm.

In Beaufort County a curfew will be in effect from dusk Friday through dawn on Saturday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
