Haiti death toll reached to more than 800, and UN has warned it could take days for the full impact of Hurricane Mathew in Haiti to emerge.

Haiti’s Civil Protection Agency on Friday doubled the death toll from the hurricane from 400 to more than 800. It was reported that many of the deaths were in the south-western coast, which suffered the full full force of the hurricane.

The World Food Programme’s Carlos Veloso says some of the hard-hit towns can only be reached by air or sea.

Hurricane Matthew is currently battering the coastline of the US state of Florida but has been downgraded to a Category Two storm, with sustained wind speed dropping to 110mph (177km/h).
