Map Information

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.

The present map shows the damage grade assessment in the area of Cajoux (Haiti). The thematic layer has been derived from post-event satellite image by means of visual interpretation. The estimated geometric accuracy is 5 m CE90 or better, from native positional accuracy of the background satellite image.
