Hurricane Matthew has left behind widespread destruction across Haiti and killed hundreds in its path, and officials fear the death toll could increase as aid workers reach the worst-hit areas. The death toll is rising on an hourly basis as aid workers and authorities get into these really hard-hit regions where not only communication and power were knocked out, but the roads were knocked out, so there has really been no way in. At least 336 people have died since Matthew made landfall in Haiti on Tuesday as a Category 4 hurricane. Four people are missing, 211 are injured and more than 60,000 people are now displaced from the killer storm. Worse still, there are warnings the aftermath could worsen the nation's cholera epidemic, which killed at least 10,000 people after the 2010 earthquake. An estimated 500,000 children live in the areas in the southern region most affected by Hurricane Matthew.
