Haitian authorities have resorted to burying the dead in mass graves in the aftermath of the devastating Hurricane Matthew, which has killed at least 1,000 people on the island, Reuters reports. Cholera outbreaks have contributed to the dire situation.

The small Caribbean nation, which shares an island with Dominican Republic, has been struggling to deal with the aftermath of the powerful storm that uprooted trees and destroyed houses. Hundreds of people were killed in structure collapse and flooding, with winds blowing at up to 230 kilometers per hour (140 miles per hour).

It emerged that at least 13 people have died in an outbreak of cholera in the aftermath of the disaster.
