Hurricane Matthew is barreling towards the East Coast and at least one million people have been forced to leave their homes in Florida because of the potential danger.

Miami Airport announced Thursday morning that it is shutting down operations because of the storm and many other airports are starting to experience problems including McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.

Several flights from Las Vegas to Miami had to be canceled and more cancelations and delays are expected as the storm moves in.

So far, 13 Action News has not encountered anyone who is stranded in Las Vegas but that is a definite possibility.
