Hundreds of people have been killed in Haiti as Hurricane Matthew slams into the capital of Port-au-Prince. Rescue workers in the island nation are struggling to access areas cut off from the storm.

The death toll has soared in the past day to more than 300 and thousands are displaced.

Some 50 people were reported killed in the town of Roche-a-Bateau alone.

The nearby city of Jeremie saw 80% of its buildings levelled. In Sud province 30,000 homes were destroyed.

Watch:

A state of emergency has been declared as Hurricane Matthew made first landfall on Florida with the full force of the deadly Category Four storm and its potentially catastrophic winds of 130 mph still to hit on Friday.

President Barrack Obama also declared a state of emergency in Georgia and South Carolina.

500 miles of coastline and 26 million Americans are also at risk.

      What are you talking about? These are geological and weather forces ocurring based on their geographic location. Is it not the same hurricane that is hitting Florida? The difference is that one place will be better prepared than the other with probably few to no casualties because it has more money and better response systems in place. I’m religious too, but please don’t be ridiculous.

      they are descendants from Benin Republic and Idol Worshipping is in their DNA. Do some youtube research on them. They all go to church but everyone has an idol in their house . These are facts – ask and find out
