Hur­ri­cane’s fierce winds hit Haiti

China Daily (USA) - - ACROSS AMERICA -

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.
