Hurricane Irma: One missing, some injured, much flooded in Haiti

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (sentinel.ht) – Weather conditions in Haiti improved Saturday, a day after the eye of a category 4 hurricane passed 60 miles off and along the country’s northern coast. Hurricane Irma left one missing, several injured and much flooding across the greater north, most severe in Ouanaminthe and Fort Liberte, Nord-Est.

Heavy rains continued through Friday night and early Saturday. Meterorologists are expected scattered thunderstorms and tropical storm force conditions in the coming days as another major hurricane, Jose, hovers north of the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.

Flooding was of most concern left by Hurricane Irma. Much of the damage is in the towns of Fort-Liberte and Ouanaminthe. There was one missing person reported and several seriously injured in the North and Central departments.

The forecast is for a mostly cloudy rest of the weekend with scattered storms into the early weekdays.
