Haiti: Hurricane Matthew - Update
Created: 07/10/2016 +

Overview
  • At least 25% of Haiti’s territory has been impacted by Hurricane Matthew: Sud, Sud-Est, Grande'Anse, Nippes, Nord-Ouest, and Ouest departments are the most affected.
  • So far, 300 people have been reported dead, and 350,000 people are estimated to be in need of assistance. At least 15,623 people have been displaced and over 21,000 have been evacuated. 
  • Some populations in the south are still inaccessible; a greater humanitarian response will likely be necessary to prevent dire long-term consequences, especially given the ongoing cholera epidemic.
