Haiti

Oh No, Not Again!

It looks like Haiti just can’t catch a break with new president Martelly, and his wife, warning the population of the dangers looming with the upcoming hurricane season. The country is now on orange alert as heavy rains are expected to impact most areas this weekend. See more here.

  1. Oddly, no one at any of the cluster meetings seems to know what an “Orange Alert” means, or even that Haiti had an alert system. One press story described a GoH Civil Defense contingency plan, which no one seems to have any information about. Turns out this was a bit of a false alarm anyhow, Jess. It didn’t rain any more heavily than normal for this time of year.
