Populations, especially those living in flood plains, near the banks of rivers and ravines, near the coast and on the mountainsides, must remain vigilant and listen to the radio to be aware of the evolution of weather situation.
The DPC is asking to teh populations :
The DPC reminds the civil protection structures departmental, municipal and local, that they must remain mobilized and continue to support the population during this rainy season.
In addition, the Humanitarian Aid Department of the European Commission (ECHO) stressed that the heavy rains have affected several areas across the country in the past days, provoking mainly small scale flooding "Up to now, the affected population has been supported by national capacities. However, as the contingency stocks of the Haitian Civil Protection are limited, international assistance might be requested if the rains continue at the same pace. Existing contingency stocks of the international community include inter alia non-food items, food, nutrition and cholera stocks."
