On Friday, it was reported that the death toll in Haiti has reached to almost 900 three days after Hurricane Matthew hit the south peninsula. The high death toll is due partly to the debris and the cholera disease.  Many have been left homeless and do not have food or clean water.

According to the Associated Press, 350,000 people are in need of aid. In addition, there are dozens of people that have been reported missing. The United Nations stated that it will takes day in order for the aid to reach to the rural parts of Haiti and suspect that the death toll will continue to rise as search parties are being assembled.
