Daytona Beach Florida bills itself as "The World's Most Famous Beach" On Friday after Hurricane Matthew moved up the coast -- powerful waves persist and there are plenty of signs of what hurricane left behind. Matthew skirted Florida on Friday with winds of up to 120 miles per hour -- but had not made landfall by Friday afternoon. About 22,000 people moved into Florida shelters -- Georgia and South Carolina also opened dozens of shelters for evacuees. Hurricane Matthew has already left a lethal imprint on Haiti -- killing more than 800 people and leaving tens of thousands homeless. Now it is moving on -- heading up the Atlantic Coast through Georgia, South Carolina and into North Carolina.
