Hurricane Matthew heavily impacted much of the East Coast, here in Iowa families are worried about their relatives in the hard hit areas.

Paula Schwabe called her sister in Jacksonville, Florida through FaceTime Sunday.

Her sister described the hurricane saying, the rain felt like needles when it hit her body during the storm.

Paula says she felt helpless in Iowa while she watched the hurricane unfold in Florida.

"I couldn't reach my sister at times because there were just an overabundance of cell phone calls so your heart just breaks because there's nothing you can do and they are all there and you want to be with them but you know you can't," said Schwabe.

Paula says much of her family lives in Florida including her parents, she says she's happy all her family members are safe.
