Hurricane Matthew killed more than 800 people in Haiti before it headed northwards towards the southeastern United States early on 8 October. Rescue efforts were hit by the massive destruction, with trees felled, buildings destroyed and floodwaters cutting off remote areas. The United Nations warned that it could take days for the full impact of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti to emerge.
NRS Relief continues to monitor the situation and is ready to provide additional relief supplies and temporary shelters as orders come in from clients worldwide.
