Hurricane Matthew hits Haiti

Hosted by

As Hurricane Matthew heads for Florida, President Obama cancelled today's campaign appearances there. From the headquarters of FEMA, he emphasized the severity of the storm and issued this warning. "Matthew could soon affect areas all across the southeast. So at my direction, FEMA has been on the ground in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina, working with state and local officials to prepare"

The Governors of Florida and North Carolina are warning people to "prepare for the worst," but the island nation of Haiti might already have seen it. We get an update from Jacqueline Charles, who is there for the Brian Concannon, director of the Institute for Democracy and Justice in Haiti, who joins us from Boston.
