WATCH City of Jeremie Haiti Suffers Massive Destruction in Hurricane Matthew

The devastating impact of Hurricane Matthew on Haiti's already fragile infrastructure is apparent in the video below, taken by a helicopter pilot flying over the city of Jeremie.

The capital of the Grand'Anse department, Jeremie is largely isolated from the rest of Haiti, in the country's western half. The city has about 31,000 residents.

The pilot who took this video, which was provided by the Connecticut-based nonprofit Haitian Health Foundation, said Jeremie is "wiped out. Barely 1 percent of houses are standing. The people are alive ... They survived. But soon, they may starve. They're cut off."
