">did not hold back when talking about the strength of Hurricane Matthew. He had a few choice words for any Florida resident who was not planning to evacuate. Finding the proper tone to reach the audience is particularly difficult when strong storms such as Hurricane Matthew are imminent.

Hopefully everyone took the precautions necessary to stay safe and keep out of the path of Hurricane Matthew. Smith may have come off a little strong, but some warnings need to be heard.
