Hurricane Matthew Storms Out
Hurricane Matthews has been demoted from a level five hurricane to a tropical storm as of Sunday, October ninth as it made its distance from the U.S. coastline.
It hit around twenty three different areas with a death toll of 1,027 on September 28, 2016, and resulted in nine hundred deaths in Haiti, and fifteen from the United States. North Carolina has the highest death toll in the U.S.
According to PBS NEWSHOUR Hurricane Matthew is “the most powerful hurricane to threaten the Eastern Seaboard in a decade”, compared to that of Hurricane Felix of 2007.
The Western edge of Haiti has taken the vanquish of the hurricane, having entire areas torn down. Jeremie has a death count of 191, and was the home of over 42,000 people, and is now rubble.
“Once Matthew reached the eastern Caribbean, it became a hurricane and rapidly intensified. Its peak intensity was late Sept. 30 into early Oct. 1 when it reached Category 5 strength with 160 mph winds.” Weather.com from HurricaneNews said.
