Haiti devastation sees Hurricane Matthew death toll surge to 108
The death toll from Hurricane Matthew rose dramatically as officials in Haiti revealed at least 108 people had lost their lives.
It came as the storm gained new fury as it hammered the central Bahamas, and forecasters feared it would strengthen further as it approaches Florida’s heavily-populated Atlantic coast.
The deaths in Haiti raise the hurricane’s overall toll across the Caribbean to 114.
Matthew mashed concrete walls and tore away rooftops, forcing thousands of Haitians to flee for their lives.
