Toll Rises by Hour in Haiti Amid Ruin Left by Hurricane Matthew

LES CAYES, Haiti  A hospital now a shambles, its floors swamped with garbage and water, absent electricity. People living in the streets, camped in front of their broken homes. Buildings smashed into splinters. Farm fields flattened, portending a hard year ahead.

.

For me, Roche-Bateau is not a place to live anymore, said Warens Jeanty, 26, a tourism operator surveying the beach towns and picturesque port hamlets that dot Haitis coast. People have nowhere to stay.

.

As Haiti picks through the detritus left by Hurricane Matthew, more bodies are turning up every hour. Some estimates said that more than 800 people had died in the storm, more than double what the government has reported, though it acknowledged that the toll was unknown. In one part of the countrys southern peninsula, nearly 30,000 homes were destroyed and 150 lives lost, officials said.

.

And a full accounting of damage has not even started.

.

I had never seen anything like this, said Marie Yolene Gateau, a retired New York City guidance counselor who lives in Leogane, Haiti, a town that was largely flattened in the 2010 earthquake. Now the storm has wiped out most of the regions sugar crop, bananas and mangoes, she said. The hurricane was attacking the trees. I watched thinking, When is it going to stop?

.

Passage to many areas remained blocked, thwarting efforts to assess the destruction and to help survivors. A single remote village reported 82 dead on Friday, while others said they were waiting to account for dozens of missing people. The government, which requires visual proof to count a death in its toll, could hardly keep up with the accounts of loss stitched together from hospitals.

.

Were still far from having a full picture of the extent of the damage, said Marc Vincent, a Unicef representative in Haiti. We are hoping for the best, but bracing for the worst.

.

It is a state that Haiti has grown accustomed to.

.

The country was getting ready for elections this Sunday, the product of nearly a year of wrangling and recriminations. But after a long period of political uncertainty and delay, even nature would not let Haiti hold the vote.

.

Now the hurricane has presented yet another hurdle to a nation still grappling with the devastation of the 2010 earthquake and a cholera epidemic inadvertently introduced to the country by United Nations peacekeepers.

.

Etienne Navuson, 27, waited out the hurricane this week in his concrete home as the wind lashed his village on the southwestern peninsula. When he awoke, almost everything had vanished: cattle, crops, fields and homes.

.

Had the rain fallen more than it did  had it gone for just one more hour we would have lost even more, Mr. Navuson said.
