Joining TODAY via Skype from Daytona Beach, Florida, storm chaser Simon Brewer says he's getting hit with 50 mph winds swirling around the outer eye wall of Hurricane Matthew. A storm surge has flooded the area around him as he sits in his car along a major highway on the coast.

New projections show that Hurricane Matthew, now a Category 3 storm, could make landfall in Charleston, South Carolina, on Saturday. TODAY's Al Roker forecasts that storm surge could be the most severe between Charleston and Myrtle Beach.
