Hurricane Matthew closes in on Haiti, Jamaica

Hurricane Matthew barrelled its way through the Caribbean and roared toward Haiti, Jamaica and Cuba on Monday.

The U.S. National Hurricane Centre in Miami said the dangerous storm has top sustained winds near 130 mph. The centre of Matthew was forecast to approach Jamaica and southwestern Haiti late Monday and eastern Cuba on Tuesday.

Matthew briefly reached maximum Category 5 status Friday, making it the strongest Atlantic hurricane in almost a decade. The storm was expected to remain a powerful and dangerous hurricane into Tuesday, forecasters said.

In Haiti, one of the world’s poorest countries, families were being urged to stock up on food and water, and evacuations were underway in high-risk areas. The Haitian Civil Protection Agency said it had 576 temporary shelters available that can accommodate up to 88,252 people for at least 3 days.
