MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Hurricane Matthew has killed at least 102 people, the death toll in struggling Haiti alone rising to 98, local officials told Reuters, as the storm headed northward on Thursday battering the Bahamas en route to Florida.
Many were killed by falling trees, flying debris and swollen rivers. Southern and western Haiti bore the brunt.
