Hillary Clinton wants to take advantage of voters looking for information about Hurricane Matthew, the Category 4 storm currently threatening Florida.

Politico reports that the Clinton campaign will spend $63,000 to reach Weather Channel viewers there for five days beginning on Thursday. That was confirmed by the Clinton campaign.

Florida officials are sending dire warnings to residents, urging them to seek refuge from the storm.

“Evacuate, Evacuate, Evacuate,” Florida governor Rick Scott said, adding that, “this storm will kill you. Time is running out.”

The hurricane threatens unprecedented damage in the important swing state, as climate change alarmists are already citing global warming as responsible for the storm.

“The nearly unprecedented rapid intensification we saw with this storm is favored by warmer oceans and greater ocean heat content,” said climate scientist Michael E. Mann to The Huffington Post.
