The Civil Protection Office (CPO) today reported that the heavy rains that hit the Haitian capital caused the death of at least one person.

The tragedy occurred the day before when a landslide took place in Canape-Vert neighborhood, killing a 31-year-old woman.

The CPO urged the population to take all measures indicated by the authorities, especially in the current rainy season and the hurricane season that begins next June.

In 2017 five people died, while another 19 are still missing, after torrential rains and floods that hit the country.

According to specialists, Haiti is more vulnerable to floods and landslides due to the effects of uncontrolled tree cutting and deforestation.
