The Death Toll from Hurricane Matthew in Haiti Has Soared Past 800

While Hurricane Matthew menaces the coast of the United States, were only just now learning the horrific extent of the storms destruction in Haiti earlier this week.

.

At least 877 Haitians have died, and tens of thousands left homeless after the storm flattened entire towns. The official death toll may rise in the days ahead, particularly since cholera outbreaks are popping up in some areas.

.

The Category 4 hurricane  the strongest to hit Haiti in 50 years  missed the capital of Port-au-Prince. But it absolutely devastated the western cities of Les Cayes and Jeremie. Here are some wrenching photos from the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti:

.

Both the government and the UN say that at least 350,000 people are in dire need of assistance. Aid workers and rescue teams are still struggling to reach many of the hardest-hit areas, as floods have made roads inaccessible and severe winds have cut communication lines.

.

Making things worse, cholera outbreaks have killed at least 7 people after flood water mixed with sewage. And the storm destroyed up to 80 percent of crops in some areas.

.

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, which only increases its vulnerability to hurricanes and other disasters. The countrys already flimsy building codes are rarely enforced. Thousands of houses toppled during the storm, particularly those not made of concrete blocks.

.

Poor preparation also hurt: Whereas neighboring Cuba has mandatory hurricane drills every spring, Haiti tends to be far less ready. Before Matthew arrived, Haitian officials struggled to evacuate areas in the hurricanes path. As Reuters reported, “Poor Haitians are often reluctant to leave home in the face of storms, fearing their few belongings will be stolen.”
