Haiti Devastated By Matthew

2016-10-06 23:37:131 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

Hurricane Matthew has caused the worst humanitarian crisis in Haiti since the deadly 2010 earthquake, according to the UN.

The death toll from Hurricane Matthew has risen to 264, Haiti's Civil Protection Service said.

Rescue workers in Haiti warned Thursday that the death toll from Hurricane Matthew could rise as they worked to establish the full extent of the damage.

"The most concerning thing is we really don't have a full picture. We don't have all the information we need in order to see how bad it is," said Christy Delafield, a communications officer with Mercy Corps, a global humanitarian aid agency.

"This is due to a bridge being out," she said. "There have been landslides and the cell phone service has been unreliable. We need to get to the south of the country," she added.

Matthew made landfall in Haiti as a Category 4 hurricane on Tuesday. At least 108 people have been confirmed dead.
