Haiti and Cuba assess the damage as Hurricane Matthew passes

Haiti and Cuba assess the damage as Hurricane Matthew passes

Many parts of the Caribbean have been facing torrential rain and winds of up to 240km/h as hurricane Matthew descended upon the region this week.

The Category Four storm brought torrential rain and flooding to many parts of Haiti and Eastern Cuba as it struck on Monday and Tuesday night. 

While Cuba and Haiti are now in the clear, Hurricane Matthew now has its sights set on the Bahamas before potentially heading up towards the Floridian coastline in the States.

The storm, which is being described as the most powerful Atlantic storm in recent history, has left many people without shelter in as residents come to turn with the damage and destruction.

Several are believed to have perished in the storm, most of whom are believed to be Haitian residents.

Many towns in Haiti are continuing to deal with high levels of floods and damaged property as authorities grapple to provide resources to those affected.
