Hurricane Matthew lashed Haiti, leaving the country with damaged infrastructure and hundreds dead.

In addition to physical damage, the island now faces health risks, the displacement of thousands and a logistical nightmare as its people try to rebuild their lives.

We’ll also hear an update from  Steve Garten, public safety emergency manager for Flagler County, Florida.
