Rihanna's 'Heart Absolutely Breaks' for Hurricane Matthew Victims in Haiti
On Tuesday (Oct. 4), Hurricane Matthew made landfall on Haiti, slamming an island nation that has fallen victim to countless natural disasters in recent years.
Rihanna took to Twitter on Tuesday night to send prayers to her "brothers and sisters who've fallen victim to this tragic event." See her tweet below:
My heart absolutely breaks for Haiti ---- !!! Prayers up for my brothers and sisters who've fallen victim to this tragic event! ----— Rihanna (@rihanna) October 5, 2016
Rihanna was born in the island nation of Barbados, nearly 1,000 miles south of Haiti in the Caribbean Sea.
Hurricane Matthew reportedly left a trail of destruction in Haiti, though it's too early to tell just how far-reaching the damage was. The storm also slammed into Cuba later Tuesday.
