Haiti: Before And After Hurricane Matthew – In Photos

Haiti Before And After Hurricane Matthew – In Photos

   OCTOBER 7, 2016

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, Friday October 7, 2016 – The death toll in Haiti from the catastrophic passage of Hurricane Matthew continues to rise, as authorities predicted, with the number near 300 up to this morning.

Most of the deaths were in towns and fishing villages around Haiti’s southern coast, with many killed by falling trees, flying debris and swollen rivers.

Authorities are still trying to assess the situation, but the photos below, published on BBC’s website, give an idea of some of the physical damage that has been done by Matthew when it hit the country as a Category 4 hurricane.
