Hurricane Matthew claims two lives in Haiti already even before it fully hits

Hurricane Matthew has claimed two more lives this time in Haiti even before it fully hits the hemisphere's poorest nation.

It brings to four, the number of people killed by the deadly system.

The two deaths are those of fishermen who were caught in rough water churned up by the storm.

A boat carrying one of the men capsized early Monday off the tiny southwestern fishing town of Saint Jean du Sud as he was trying to bring his wooden skiff to shore. 

The body of the other was recovered a short time later off the nearby town of Aquin after he apparently drowned.
