At the end of September, Hurricane Matthew swept through Martinique and Guadeloupe. The category 4 hurricane then turned towards western Haiti on Monday 3 October, with devastating effect, before pursuing its path to the United States. To task satellites to help locate and map areas hit by the hurricane, the International Charter on Space and Major Disasters, cofounded by CNES and ESA in 2002, was activated on several occasions to support emergency relief teams on the ground.
