Pre: Matt is in Orlando Florida, in the thick of Hurricane Irma. I spoke with him earlier and he is with his family and confident that they will have some rough weather, but will be safe. He says:
“Thank you to the ones that have reached out and sent their best wishes. We are currently putting towels at the doors to my parents’ back patio right now, so it’s getting interesting”
We are not sure what will happen with electricity and internet in the Orlando area, but I will keep the listeners up-to-date on Matt’s status as I know more. Check out @BroadwayRadio and @BWWMatt on Twitter for updates.
