Hurricane Matthew, a powerful category 4 Atlantic hurricane, hit the south western tip of Haiti making landfall on Tuesday, 4 October 2016. Its maximum sustained wind is reported to equal 250 km/h and torrential rain as well as potential mudslides, and caused extensive damage in coastal areas.
To support the Haitian Government, WFP, as lead agency, aims to provide logistics coordination and information management support, as well as facilitating the handling of the incoming cargo.
With support from the Global Logistics Cluster in Rome and WFP’s Regional Bureau in Panama, a Logistics Response Team (LRT) has been deployed to establish a logistics coordination cell in Port-au-Prince.
