Haiti is not under the threat of a cyclone or a tropical wave. The weather disturbance is due to moisture-filled convective cells that bring downpours over the land.
The rains will continue to fall on the country, informs Marcelin Esterlin, Coordinator of the Hydro-Meteorological Unit of Haiti. For his part, the Prime Minister, Ariel Henry, calls on everyone to show solidarity during these bad weather in order to save lives at this difficult time.
