Hurricane Matthew Deadly Power, from Space:
The video taken from over 400 kilometers of the Earth has been accelerated to four times the normal speed, showing the size and complexity of the storm’s path through the destruction of the Caribbean island of poverty.
Hurricane Matthew, the Caribbean’s worst storm in nearly a decade, has smashed Haiti by causing at least 11 people and has moved to Cuba to launch a flood to force hundreds of thousands to flee and now aim in the United States.
A monster storm hit the southwest end of Haiti’s howling wind, knocked down trees, tearing the roof of the flooded neighborhoods.
The sparsely populated east end of Cuba flipped Tuesday night as it headed for a two-day storm that would take it up near the length of the US coast of the Bahamas.
The Prime Minister of the Bahamas, Perry Christie, expressed concern about the potential impact of the east coast of Florida, which spilled the islands.
“We are worried because we can not control nature,” he said.
Six Metre Wave, 220KM Winds: A Storm of Anger:
The US National Hurricane Center in Miami says hurricanes are packing 220 kilometers per hour, and the highest sustained winds of six meters high waves have begun to impact the seaside promenade of Baracoa’s isolation tower. Matthew’s Deadly Power
US Hurricane Matthew Attractions:
The Red Cross launched volunteer recruitment in South Carolina, and the White House says relief supplies are being transferred to the emergency southeast of the transit area.
South Carolina said it would start evacuating 1.1 million people from its coast starting Wednesday and trying to keep them at least 160 kilometers inland. Thirteen counties in Georgia declared a state of emergency.
“It’s not going to be a quick exit, it could take hours,” South Carolina Governor Nicky Haley said. “If you can leave early, do it.”
Gas pump emptying and stores are being strengthened for the residents to do the worst.
Coastal Hyde County, North Carolina, officials have issued a state of emergency and ordered a mandatory evacuation of the Ocracoke Island tourists. The island’s residents and owners will have an extra 24 hours to prepare, and they will also be subject to Thursday’s mandatory evacuation. The beach area of Ocracoke Island is an attraction for tourists.
Motorists are rushing to fill their tanks in the coastal state of South Carolina. In the rush hour, long queues form petrol stations, traffic roar lines meandering out of the gas station, into the tourist line.
At the same time, the US Coast Guard announced that Charleston’s port is still open, large-scale ocean-going vessels should develop plans to leave the port.
Haiti’s Humanitarian Crisis:
Matthew in Haiti has now been exiled to the southwestern peninsula after landing hours, government leaders said they could not fully measure the impact. In the flooding of the Mayor of Little Goa reported two men died there, including a woman who was killed by a fallen electrode.
Four deaths were recorded in the neighboring Dominican Republic and each in Colombia and in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Deputy Special Representative of Haiti, Murad Wohebai said in a statement that many people have been forced from their homes and communications systems in the country suffered heavy losses in the southwestern peninsula have been destroyed.
He says at least 10,000 people are in shelters.
Haitian authorities have tried to impress people from the most vulnerable areas before the storm, but many are reluctant to leave, and some have only asked for the worst shelter they have ever had on them.
Aid organizations are preparing for “catastrophic damage” in hardest-hit areas in poor countries, Agence France-Presse reported.
In an interview with Agence France-Presse, Jeremy Konyndyk, who was in charge of the US Overseas Disaster Assistance Office of the United States Agency for International Development, said the rescue team was preparing a “huge response”.
Mr. Konyndyk said that Haiti’s airport is currently closed, but OFDA will send more resources as soon as possible.
“We expect this to be quite disastrous, with water supply and water infrastructure construction, which does cause water-borne diseases with serious risk of damage.”
The southern part of Haiti has been an important bridge to Port-au-Prince since the collapse of the southern peninsula, isolated from the rest of the country.
“The logistics barrier will be enormous,” Mr. Konyndyk admits. “The road will be blocked all over – probably in Haiti – but particularly in the worst affected areas of the country’s southwest.”
Erosion is particularly dangerous in Haiti, where high mountain areas lack trees and shrubs, and they have cut fuel.
“We expect this landslide to block various local roads,” Mr. Konyndyk said.
Haiti is home to nearly 11 million people, of which thousands are still living in tents after the massive 2010 earthquake in Haiti nationwide.
