Hurricane Matthew
Hurricane Matthew0Killing more than 1,000 people, Hurricane Matthew was one of the most powerful storms to ever hit the Western Hemisphere. Wreaking incredible havoc on its journey from the Caribbean to Cape Hatteras, the hurricane has caused more than $10 billion (W11.3 trillion) in damages. It formed on Sep. 28 and finally dissipated on Oct. 10.

On Sep. 25, a tropical wave from the west coast of Africa moved across the Atlantic Ocean. It gained strength within three days, becoming the 13th tropical storm of the 2016 hurricane season. The storm, now called Hurricane Matthew, intensified and its peak winds reached an astonishing 257 km/h on Sep. 30. On Oct. 4, Matthew hit eastern Cuba and Haiti. Regarding the latter, The New York Times reported, “The storm left a broad tableau of devastation: houses pummeled into timber, crops destroyed and stretches of towns and villages under several feet of water. In the southern city of J?r?mie, 80 percent of the buildings were destroyed.”

From Oct. 5-10, the storm caused immense flooding throughout several coastal states, including Florida, North and South Carolina, and Georgia. According to Popular Science magazine, Hurricane Matthew “didn’t produce many iconic scenes of palm trees felled by high-speed winds” but was “immensely destructive, robbing people of their lives and homes.”
