Heavy rains and winds from hurricane Matthew have hit Haiti, Dominican Republic and Cuba, killing over 800 people and causing enormous damage to infrastructure and livelihoods. There is a risk of spread of cholera in the short term and food shortages in the coming months.
Southern Haiti has suffered the most devastating effects. The capital, Port au Prince, reported damage to infrastructure such as houses and bridges, but the south of the country (departments of Grande Anse, Nippes, Sud and Sud-Est) suffered floods and it is estimated that big humanitarian needs will appear.
