CARIBBEAN 360 – Days after Hurricane Matthew lashed Haiti, leaving widespread devastation, the death toll nears 900.

After being unable to establish communication with some of the hardest-hit towns, aid is finally beginning to arrive for the affected areas.

Reuters reports that at least 877 people have been killed in the devastating hit by Hurricane Matthew, which clobbered the Caribbean country on Tuesday.

Aid officials have reported that almost 90 percent of some areas of Haiti’s south had been “completely destroyed,” according to BBC News.

  1. I don't understand, that Prime Minister was fully aware of a Category 4 hurricane heading to Haiti, what preparation did he made to save lives. What shelter he had in place for them? I'm sure no one in his family got killed! Rally!!!!! He shouldn't be running the country because he don't care about his people...Amen!
    Very SAD! My heart goes out to the poor people of Haiti. They need JESUS!
