On October 4, 2016, Hurricane Matthew made landfall in Haiti as a category 4. Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, is still struggling to rebuild after a devastating earthquake in 2010 and the subsequent cholera epidemic. The wind, rain and storm surge is expected to cause significant damage to the impoverished country where tens of thousands of people live in flimsy shacks. In advance of the storm, Haitian officials were moving people into the country’s 1,300 emergency shelters. The storm is expected to continue onto Cuba, the Bahamas and possibly the United States.
