International relief efforts continue in Haiti in light of the devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew in the impoverished Caribbean nation.

FOX's Eben Brown reports from Miami:

More than a thousand Hatians lost their lives due to Hurricane Matthew, when it pounded the already crippled island nation with the full force of its winds:

(Woman) "I heard a sound, boom, I heard a boom and then the roof came off of my house and it was gone. The wind took the roof and it was gone."

She lives in the town of Jeremie. Drew Garrison is a missionary stationed there:

(Garrison) "Anything that was not concrete was flattened, the palm trees were bent over in half or completely ripped of their leaves. There were several little fishing villages that were just looked desolate."

The U.S. military has already distributed about a 100,000 pounds of food, water, supplies and medicine. The United Nations is appealing for more funding.
