On Oct. 4, 2016, Hurricane Matthew made landfall on southwestern Haiti as a Category 4 storm—the strongest storm to hit the Caribbean nation in more than 50 years. At least 1,000 Haitians are dead as a result of the storm, and the United Nations estimates that 1.4 million people in the area need humanitarian assistance. Although the entire country sustained damage from the storm, the western edge of Haiti was devastated, where large portions of several towns were turned into rubble.
