Haiti Recovering from "Apocalyptic Destruction" After Hurricane Matthew

Port-au-Prince, October 11 (RHC)-- Haitian interim President Jocelerme Privert is warning the country faces a possible famine from what he described as the "apocalyptic destruction" of Hurricane Matthew. 

The unofficial death toll from the hurricane has topped 1,000 as the country battles a growing cholera outbreak and authorities dig mass graves for those killed by the Category 4 storm. 

The devastating storm hit a week ago, but many areas have still received no aid, and food and medicine have reportedly run out. 

Meanwhile, the death toll in the United States from Hurricane Matthew has risen to at least 30 people, as floodwaters continue to rise.  The U.S. state of North Carolina is struggling with historic flooding, while in Georgia more than 100,000 people are still without electricity.
