Haitians living in vulnerable coastal shacks frantically sought safe shelter as the strongest Caribbean storm in nine years, Hurricane Matthew, closed in on the southwestern peninsula, sending storm surges, wind and rain into seaside towns.The storm is forecast to spread hurricane force winds and up to three feet of rain across denuded hills prone to flash floods and mudslides, threatening villages as well as shanty towns in the capital Port-au-Prince.One of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes in recent history, it was about 100 miles (155 km) south of westernmost Haiti at 11 p.m. EDT (0300 GMT) on Monday, the U.S. hurricane center said.Crawling north at about 7 miles-per-hour (11 kph), the storm threatens to linger long enough for its winds and rain to cause great damage.In Les Cayes about 150 people huddled without electricity or food in the town's largest shelter, a school.
