Haiti - Tropical wave alert : Civil Protection calls on the population to be vigilant
The General Directorate of Civil Protection (DPC) informs the population that the big rainy season is underway. Since Saturday, a tropical wave, which was blocked on an axis stretching from the Bahamas to Venezuela, is now advancing on Haiti accompanied by torrential rains, locally stormy and not very mobile.

This wave will persist for several days with an intensification from Tuesday and for the next 72 hours...

Consequently, this situation could cause flash floods (sudden flooding), landslides and urban runoff in the most vulnerable areas, including the North-West, North-East and Artibonite departments.

Vulnerabilities caused by the absence or dysfunction of sewer and rainwater drainage networks in urban areas and the severe degradation of the environment greatly increase the level of risk.

The Hydro-Meteorological Unit is closely monitoring the situation in order to inform the population of the evolution of the situation.

The DPC takes this opportunity to ask residents of areas exposed to the risk of flooding and gales to take the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their loved ones, to identify temporary shelters in advance in the event of evacuation and above all, not to cross flooded rivers under any circumstances.
