Areas Most Affected:
Port-de-Paix, Gros Morne, Chansolme and Turtle Island.
Haiti’s history is marred with cyclones, hurricanes, tropical storms, torrential rains, floods and earthquakes. Prior to the 2010 earthquake a total of four storms hit the island during its notorious hurricane season in 2008 which affected over 800,000 people, killed 793 and caused $1 billion in damages. Crop and infrastructure damages caused by flooding ultimately led to countrywide malnutrition battering an already impoverished nation. It is safe to say the country of Haiti never fully recovered from these storms and two years later disaster struck again.
