Following the passage of Hurricane Matthew on Haiti, the President of the French Republic François Hollande declared Friday :

"The Matthew hurricane hit Haiti very hard on 4 and 5 October. It made many victims and enormous material damage.

The President of the Republic expresses its sympathy and support to the Haitian people, already as proven in recent years.

The Head of State wished that France is mobilizing all available resources to implement very quickly, in coordination with our European partners and the international community for emergency assistance.

As early as 5 October, at the request of the Haitian authorities, a Falcon 50 of Armed Forces in Martinique has conducted reconnaissance flights to assess the damage caused by the weather, including the necessary infrastructure for the delivery of humanitarian aid to victims.
