Matthew will be retired. This has been a record-breaking and catastrophic hurricane with massive loss of life. Here are notable records so far.

I heard a figure of an estimated 4-6 billion dollars worth of damage that Matthew has or will have caused by the time all things are said and done not to mention the 1000+ deaths. So yeah Matthew's name is going to be retired.

Not sure how the numbers are figured, determined, etc.... but AP reporting that an estimate from Goldman Sachs puts the damage at approximately $10 Billion

Not trying to belabor the point, but Matthew would have been retired even if it had scooted out to sea after Haiti/Cuba. It didn't "need" the US part to obviously justify name retirement.
