Hurricane’s fierce winds hit Haiti
A man walks near a fallen tree while Hurricane Matthew passes through Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on Tuesday. The storm slammed into Haiti’s southwestern tip with howling 145 mph winds, knocking down trees and tearing off roofs in the poor and largely rural area, while inundating neighborhoods in floodwaters and mud. By nightfall, at least 11 deaths had been blamed on the storm. But with a key bridge washed out, impassable roads and phone communication cut off with Haiti’s hardest-hit area, there was no way to know how many people might be dead or injured.
