Hurricane Matthew has now claimed three lives across the Caribbean. This as the category four hurricane makes landfall on Haiti’s western coast around 7am this morning.
Matthew claimed the life of a teenager in St Vincent who was pinned to the side of his home while clearing a block drain. The storm then went on to claim the life of a man in Columbia as it lingered in the Caribbean Sea.
It’s a third victim a fisherman from Haiti died this morning as the storm churned up swells 7 to 10 feet high. Southern Haiti and southwestern Dominican Republic can expect 15 to 25
Inches of rain and isolated amounts of 40 inches, as the storm makes its way through the Windward Passage. On the forecast track, the eye of Matthew will move near eastern Cuba later today, and move near or over portions of the southeastern and
Central Bahamas tonight and Wednesday, and approach the northwestern Bahamas Wednesday night. Damage assessment continues here in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
