Haiti - Climate : The Orange alert is maintained
This Friday, the Orange alert is maintained, the authorities maintain the ban until further order of the cabotage operations particularly on the coast south of the country as well as flights at the arrival and to the departure of Jérémie, les Cayes and Jacmel.

A broad area of low pressure located over the Caribbean Sea between Jamaica and Nicaragua continues to influence our weather today. This low pressure system will still generate heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms in Haiti during the next 72 hours. The most significant rain will particularly affect the Nippes, Grande-Anse, South, Southeast, Artibonite, West and North West.

Since the soil is already saturated in many parts of the country, the Permanent Secretariat for Risk Management and Disaster (SPGRD) maintains this Friday, June 3, 2011 at 9am the phase of alert to the level of orange vigilance (ie impact risk of moderate to severe) to heavy rains in the National Emergency Plan face to the threats of heavy rain with risk of river flood, rockfalls, landslide, collapse and flooding on our departments including the Nippes, Grande-anse, South, Southeast, Artibonite, Northwest and West.

The National Centre of Meteorology (CNM) together with the Maritime and Navigation Service of Haiti (SEMANAH), the National Civil Aviation Office (OFNAC) and the National Airport Authority (AAN) maintain the ban until further order of the cabotage operations particularly on the coast south of the country as well as flights at the arrival and to the departure of Jérémie, les Cayes and Jacmel.

CNM together with the SPGRD and the Directorate of Civil Protection (DPC) ask the population of the areas at risk of rockfalls, landslides and flooding, to stay vigilant.

Yesterday, Alta Jean-Baptiste Director of Civil Protection has announced that a child was the victim of a landslide near the town of Hinche.
