Summary

On October 4th 2016, Hurricane Matthew made landfall in Haiti, with heavy winds and rain barreling to the southern coastal towns. This hurricane resulted in the destruction of many houses, tin-roof homes, schools, public buildings, and the displacement of families to preidentified evacuation centers. The passage of Hurricane Matthew caused widespread damage to homes, public buildings and infrastructures. Nearly seven months after the hurricane, many remain in overcrowded shelters, facing unsanitary conditions, a dire protection situation and extremely limited assistance. 6,468 buildings were inventoried, including 3,173 buildings in Chambellan and 3,295 buildings in Moron.
