SEBASTIAN – If you are a resident in Brevard, Indian River Counties, it is time to have your evacuation plans made.

This photo is a look at the new Euro Model that just came down for Wednesday through early Saturday. This model suggests that the storm could make landfall in Indian River and Brevard Counties.

If you choose to wait out Hurricane Matthew, make sure you have plenty of food and water for at least three days.

The storm has slightly made a shift towards the west and could make landfall in Florida by Friday morning.

Residents east of I-95 can expect evacuation orders to come on Thursday. Brevard County evacuations are already in effect for the Barrier Islands and mobile homes.

As these are early predictions, Hurricane Matthew could change course again during the next 24 hours.
