"Ars reached out to Kennedy Space Center's Amber Philman on Tuesday afternoon, and she said the center is currently at HURCON III status, which means officials there expect sustained 50 knot winds within 72 hours. Hurricane preparations and facility securing will begin Wednesday morning, she said. Other tenants are also closely watching the storm."
We are closing at 1 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, Oct. 5, due to Hurricane Matthew. The center will be closed on Thursday, Oct. 6 & Friday, Oct. 7.— NASA Kennedy / KSC (@NASAKennedy) October 5, 2016
