Two boys carry the frame of an old motorcycle along a flooded street in the town of Jeremie which suffered severe damage after Hurricane Matthew hit the the southwest peninsula. Hurricane Matthew, the first category 5 Atlantic hurricane since 2007, hit the island on 4 October 2016. Winds of up to 230km/h (145mph) tore across the worst affected areas, mainly in the south of the island, killing around over 1,000 people and leaving hundreds of thousands in need of assistance.
