through Haiti with winds of up to 230 km/h. Hurricane Matthew made landfall near Les Anglais before
continuing northwards along the Windward Passage. The slow movement of the hurricane increased the
rainfall associated, with up to 600mm registered causing widespread damage, flooding, and displacement
across the island.
