MAPS IN THE NEWS:
Over the weekend, voters in Colombia stunned their president and pollsters by narrowly rejecting a peace deal with the country's FARC rebels. Some have speculated that Hurricane Matthew was at least partly to blame: Matthew brushed Colombia's northern coast immediately before the voting, destroying homes, roads, and polling places. This map shows that the provinces sustaining the most damage from Matthew -- Magdalena, La Guajira, Bolivar, Atlantico, and Sucre -- all supported the peace deal. img.washingtonpost.com/rf/image_1484w/2010-2019/WashingtonPost/2016/10/03/Foreign/Graphics/2300-colombia1004-v2.jpg
