South Florida escaped Hurricane Matthew essentially unscathed when the storm zigged instead of zagging. I read that 50,000 people, mostly in the county north of us, Broward, lost power. Here the lights flickered a couple of times and surged once despite our house-sized surged protector.
Now to take the patio stuff back outside. Meanwhile, the radio suggests that the northern part of the state is still at risk of landfall, and that a ten-foot (!) storm surge may hit some places. Plus waves.
