Category 4 Hurricane Matthew is threatening the Caribbean with maximum sustained wind speed of 220 km/h and heavy rainfall. It's slowly moving northward from the Caribbean Sea and is closing in delivering potentially catastrophic floods to Haiti.

Hurricane Matthew is expected to pass very close to the western tip of the Tiburon Peninsula, which includes most of Haiti's southern coast. This event could dump up to 1 meter of rain and will likely produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
