Hundreds of people have turned to find shelter in Haiti as authorities on Wednesday said that they are struggling to provide drinking water and have been unable to reach several communities that have been recently affected by heavy flooding that took place in recent days.
At least four people have lost their lives. One has been reported missing following a cold front hit that has hit the northern and southern region of Haiti on Sunday, unleashing heavy rains that caused widespread flooding and fierce winds that have uprooted trees.
Over 2,580 homes have been reportedly damaged, and some 500 people are staying under a temporary shelter in the north coastal city of Fort Liberte.
Haiti’s Civil Protection Agency has said people are imploring for the water, food and blankets to cover themselves.
According to the reports, authorities have confirmed at least one death in the neighbouring Dominican Republic.
