Answering your questions about Hurricane Matthew

TAMPA — We’ve been walking around talking to folks on the Tampa Riverwalk all about Hurricane Matthew and now it’s time to get some answers.

Bobby, here’s one from University of Tampa student Alyssa Salerno.

“I think it’s going to go somewhere up the east coast ... like there where the track says it’s gonna go,” Salerno said. “Is there any more accurate way to read where the storm is going because they do turn into the land sometimes, so I was just wondering if there was more accurate technology to read where they’ll actually be going?”

You know how fickle some of these storms can be turning wherever they want. Here’s one for you from Diane Jones.

“I was wondering, Mr. Meteorologist, why and how the path of a hurricane changes on a dime … on a whim? If you could answer that question for us, we’d be most appreciative,” Jones said.

A last one and this is something I know a lot of people are wondering about from Dewey Wright who just got to Tampa from the east coast to avoid all of that weather.

“We call it a swag. You know what swag is? Scientific wild --- guess,’ Dewey said. “Why does it loop? It shouldn’t! It should go straight! What’s pushing it down to make it loop around, something that strong. I mean we’re not talking about just a little tornado here. We’re talking about something that has a circumference of 200 miles.”
