(Before It's News)

The eye of extremely dangerous Category 4 Hurricane “Matthew” has made landfall near Les Anglais in western Haiti at 11:00 UTC on October 4, 2016.

At the time of the landfall, Matthew had maximum sustained winds of 230 km/h (145 mph) and gusts to 278 km/h (172 mph). It was already dumping heavy rain over a wide region.

At 12:00 UTC, its center was located 15 km (9.3 miles) E of Tiburon, Haiti and 200 km (125 miles) S of the eastern tip of Cuba. Matthew’s minimum estimated pressure was 934 hPa.

Total rain accumulations of 381 to 635 mm (15 to 25 inches) are expected across southern Haiti and the southwestern portion of the Dominican Republic, with possible isolated amounts of 1 016 mm (40 inches).

Matthew is moving toward the north near 15 km/h (9.3 mph), and this general motion is expected to continue today.

The system will exit Haiti around 13:00 UTC and be on its way toward eastern Cuba.
