Footage shows storm-chasers fly plane INTO Hurricane Matthew

NERVE-shredding footage shows a courageous pilot flying straight into the eye of deadly Hurricane Matthew.

Daredevil flyer Tim Gallagher guides his scientific aircraft directly into the killer storm’s 150mph winds.

The incredible video shows the plane shaking as it hurtles through the hurricane which has claimed the lives of more than 500 people in the Caribbean.

Jets such as the ‘hurricane hunter’ shown in the clip are used to accurately classify the storm enabling weather experts to gauge its power.

Category Three Matthew is set to hit southern Florida with more than two million people being told to flee their homes or risk being killed by the deadly winds.

Governor Rick Scott has warned residents that their “time is up.”

He added: “You have to evacuate now if you are in an evacuation zone.

“To everyone on Florida's east coast, if you are reluctant to evacuate, just think of all the people the Hurricane has already killed.

“You and your family could be among these numbers if you don't take this seriously.”

More than 200,000 were left without power as the storm moved its way up the coast 20-miles out at sea.

A true picture of the devastation wrecked on the Caribbean became increasingly clear overnight.

Hundreds were killed in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Cuba and the Bahamas.

And the figure is expected to increase with some towns in impoverished Haiti reporting that 80 per cent of their buildings have been destroyed.

Fifty people were reported dead in the town of Roche-a-Bateau alone.

Governor Scott has also told residents "there are no excuses, you need to leave” after details emerged of the damage wreaked on Haiti.

He said: "If you're reluctant to evacuate, just think of all the people this storm has already killed. You and your family could be among these numbers if you don't take this seriously.
