Hurricane Matthew: Boynton mayor says expect the worst, hope for best


This is Boynton Beach Mayor Steven Grant’s first hurricane while living in Florida, and he’s advising residents to “expect the worst and hope for the best.”

The Post spoke with him after 1 p.m., about when the first bands of Hurricane Matthew reached Palm Beach County, and at that time he said: “Now’s the time to be in the place that you need to be in.”

Grant will be at the city’s Emergency Operations Center at the fire station on High Ridge Road along with other officials. They got there at noon.

“We will be giving people a lot of instructions over the Internet,” he said. “Check the radio if you have it.”

He said residents living east of Federal Highway should think about going elsewhere.

“Right now we don’t know how bad it’s going to get,” he said. “I hope everyone is staying safe, has supplies, and I want to remind everyone to go inside.”
