692 evacuation shelters have been inventoried. Of these, 349 have been assessed by DTM teams.
Registration data is currently available for 76 sites.

A total of 3,996 households (representing 17,748 individuals) have been registered in 76 evacuation centres.

A reported 3,014 individuals (17.0%) of the 17,748 individuals registered present various vulnerabilities.

58.2% of households interviewed have reported that their house has been destroyed while 31.4% have indicated that their house had been severely damaged by the hurricane


Hurricane Matthew, a category 4 Hurricane, made landfall in the Western part of Haiti on 4 October, causing severe damage in the southern peninsula and in areas of the North of the country, particularly the departments of Sud, Grande Anse, Nippes and Nord Ouest. As a result of the hurricane, many households took refuge in locally designated evacuation centers as well as other buildings which have served as evacuation centers. The Haitian Ministry of Interior estimated that 175,000 persons were sheltering in 307 evacuation centers in the Departments of Grande Anse and Sud.

IOM recognizes the importance of having timely and accurate information on the displaced population living in the hurricane affected departments to advise both the humanitarian response and plan an effective recovery. The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM), has been designed to identify the most pressing needs following hurricane Matthew in the departments of Grande Anse, Sud, and Nippes. IOM will use various DTM tools to collect, analyze and disseminate information. The information produced by the DTM will be shared with all relevant stakeholders through regular reports, factsheet, maps and tables and will include data on:

  1. Overall situation and damage assessment of the areas affected by hurricane Matthew

  2. Shelter assessments and registration of displaced population (inventory of all evacuation shelters in use and registration of their population)

  3. Mapping of affected areas with building inventory and status (damaged, partially damaged, severely damaged, destroyed or not damaged)

  4. Demographics, vulnerabilities, and socio-economic profile of the displaced populations linked to the inventoried buildings.

  5. Population movement trends and tracking of the displacement 6. Sectoral needs, gaps, and service provisions to the displaced populations

  6. Sectoral needs, gaps, and service provisions to the displaced populations
