(Worthy News) - Jamaica and Haiti continue to encourage residents in vulnerable areas to evacuate as the Caribbean begins to get hit by powerful Hurricane Matthew.
Haiti's interior minister Francois Anick Joseph said officials are “very worried” by the situation, adding that 1,300 shelters had been set up to assist hundreds of thousands of people.
Matthew is the strongest hurricane over the Atlantic Ocean since Felix in 2007. With maximum sustained winds of 230 kilometers per hour and higher gusts, Matthew is expected to remain a powerful storm while creating chaos on parts of the Caribbean during the next few days. [ Source ]
