2 Weston Men Inured While Putting Shutters as Hurricane Matthew Approaches

Two men suffered injuries while attempting to put their shutters up as Hurricane Matthew gets ready to make landfall in Florida.

Broward Sheriff's Office said a 56-year-old Weston man injured himself when his aluminum shutters fell on him Wednesday morning. The man suffered non-life threatening injuries, BSO says.

Authorities say another man fell from 20 feet while he was putting up shutters at his Weston home around 8 p.m. Wednesday night. He was airlifted to Broward Health.

Forecasters said Hurricane Matthew could hit Florida — or come dangerously close — late Thursday or early Friday and then scrape its way up the East Coast toward the Carolinas over the weekend.
