Hurricane Matthew, the fiercest Caribbean storm in nearly a decade, made landfall in the Bahamas on Wednesday after battering Haiti, Cuba and the Dominican Republic with torrential rains, killing at least 26 people.
The hurricane, which the United Nations said has caused the worst humanitarian crisis to hit struggling Haiti since a devastating 2010 earthquake, whipped the country, and also Cuba, with 230km-per-hour winds on Tuesday, pummelling towns, farmland and resorts.
