"Hurricane Matthew left a tableau of devastation across southern Haiti, destroying houses, leaving villages under several feet of water and killing more than 800 people, according to a count by Reuters. Photographers captured disturbing images of the aftermath.

Many of the worst-hit areas in the south were completely cut off from rescue workers by severed phone lines and collapsed bridges until Thursday.

Men in Petit-Goâve searched for a place to cross La Digue river after the only bridge linking to the south collapsed.

Buildings were ravaged, including the Ste.-Anne church in Les Cayes, below. “That many people died because they never believed what the authorities told them when they said they had to evacuate,” said Jean Senozier Despreux, who lives and works in Les Cayes and weathered the storm there. “They resisted it.””*
