All flights to and from Haiti have been cancelled after the Haitian government has announced the closure of the country's two international airports -in Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haitian-, from 6 AM Monday till 6 AM Wednesday, as the powerful hurricane Matthew starts making landfalls in a couple of hours. 

Earlier today, in a travel warning update, the US State Department urged american citizens in Haiti to leave the country if possible, before the airports started to close; the State Department has also authorized family members of U.S. government employees to depart Haiti in advance of Hurricane Matthew, as it has done in Guantanamo, Cuba, and Jamaica.
