Haiti: Nearly 900 dead after Hurricane Matthew rips through Caribbean

Areas of Les Cayes port commune in Haiti's Sud department were left devastated, Friday, after Hurricane Matthew ripped through the Caribbean island, leaving villages submerged under several feet of water and nearly 900 dead.
Victims in one of the worst hit areas in Haiti have taken shelter at a public school, awaiting support relief from the government, something they have reportedly not yet received.
Hurricane Matthew has caused mass damage in Haiti, killing at least 877, destroying some 80 percent of homes in the country's Sud department. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs at least 350,000 people are in need of assistance.
In the US, at least six people have died on the southeast coast, where the states of Florida and South Carolina, as well as parts of North Carolina and Georgia, declared a state of emergency in anticipation of the hurricane.
