The hurricane is reported to have killed at least 16 people in Haiti and the Dominican Republic after slamming the island as a Category 4 hurricane on Tuesday, the strongest storm to make landfall in Haiti in 52 years.

.

U.S. Navy Admiral Kurt Tidd, commander of U.S. forces in the Caribbean, told reporters Wednesday that the United States was sending nine military helicopters in response to the Haitian government’s request for help.

.

Some of the helicopters will be equipped for search-and-rescue missions and others for transporting supplies.

.

A Navy admiral is going to Haiti to coordinate a joint task force on storm-related relief, and between 150 and 200 military personnel are likely to travel to Haiti as well, including about 100 who will be associated with the helicopter deployments, Tidd said. He said operations would be based at Port-au-Prince airport.

.

Haiti has postponed its presidential election, scheduled for Sunday, because many schools and churches that were to serve as polling stations are being used to shelter thousands of displaced people.

.

Authorities in Port-au-Prince have not yet been able to assess Matthew’s damage fully, because a washed-out bridge has cut off access to most affected southern areas. Senior government officials said they would assess the damage in person when floods receded and conditions permitted.

.

The U.S. Agency for International Development’s Dave Herman said the U.S. government was working “very diligently” with Catholic Relief Services and the Red Cross to ensure relief aid was distributed to Haiti’s most vulnerable people.

.

Jean Claude Finole, Oxfam’s influence program director in Haiti, said Thursday at least 10,000 people were displaced and in need of aid.

.

“Our first response will concentrate on saving lives by providing safe water and hygiene kits to avoid the spread of cholera,” he said.

Disaster zone

.

Haiti’s southern disaster zone has been isolated by the loss of the bridge and a complete loss of communications networks.

.

VOA Creole reporter Jean-Hernst Eliscar said many houses in the southern city of Les Cayes were flooded and had no roofs.

.

Mourad Wahba, U.N. deputy special representative for Haiti, said Hurricane Matthew had caused the biggest humanitarian crisis there since the 2010 earthquake that killed more than 225,000 people. He said at least 10,000 people were in shelters.

Hurricane Matthew: Haiti Resilience Tested Once Again

By Tony Brown

BBC News, Haiti

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-37570712

.

.

We crossed the border from the Dominican Republic and the skies darkened and the heavens opened, dumping more misery on to a country that has suffered so much.

.

As we drove through the first small villages on the way to the capital Port-au-Prince, we could see the damage the hurricane was still inflicting.

.

The roads were already awash with rushing muddy floodwaters, the people we passed were trying to cover themselves as best they could, but they were struggling just to move against the pouring rain.

.

Haiti’s capital is disorientating. You lose all sense of being on a tropical island in the Caribbean. It is a city crammed with people. Its broken buildings, sewage and rubbish-strewn streets are tough and the bad weather brought by the storm only makes them more inhospitable, but life goes on.

.

snip

.

We only began to see the real destructive force of Hurricane Matthew once we moved towards the south-west of the country.

.

Trees fallen, banana crops uprooted and flattened, houses under water and men and women trying to get the debris out of the way.

.

It was noticeable how the people we passed were coping alone. There were no army or police around to help. Even the aid agencies are struggling to move around this damaged corner of the country.

.

As if the hurricane had not hurt the people and their lives enough, a crucial route to those hit hardest by the storm was destroyed. A bridge was washed away, leaving a wide muddy river between those who survived and the people stricken in the south.

Haiti Cleans Up From Deadly Hurricane Matthew as Storm Eyes Bahamas

Haiti began cleaning up and counting its losses Wednesday after Hurricane Matthew killed at least 19 people there, six others elsewhere in the Caribbean and left a trail of destruction before pushing toward the Bahamas.

.

The damage from the most powerful Atlantic tropical storm in almost a decade was so bad that it forced Haiti’s electoral council to postpone Sunday’s presidential election.

.

The storm pummeled towns, farmland and resorts and toppled trees, power lines and at least one bridge  and it left tens of thousands of Haitians without power.

.

Civil defense officials said many homes had been destroyed or damaged, especially in the southwestern corner of the country. U.N. officials described Matthew as the worst humanitarian crisis to hit Haiti since the 2010 earthquake.

.

Fourteen of the deaths were in the town of Petit Goave, where a key bridge linking the city to the rest of the country collapsed, Mayor Jean Samson Limomgy told NBC News.

.

Haiti’s civil protection agency confirmed five other storm-related deaths Wednesday, one of them that of a fisherman who drowned in rough water in Saint Jean du Sud, in the southern part of the country.

.

Other deaths include four in the Dominican Republic, a man in Colombia and a teenager in the island chain of St. Vincent and the Grenadines  making a total of 25 across the Caribbean.
