Cyclonic season will be very active in Haiti

Port-au-Prince, May 24 (Prensa Latina) Haiti's National Emergency Operations Center reported that the cyclonic season that begins in the Caribbean on June 1 and extends until November 30 will be hyperactive.

Emmanuel Pierre, director of operations of the entity, warned that Haiti will face 23 named phenomena, including 11 potential hurricanes.

“All forecasts made for this season with Colorado State University indicate that it could be very active,” Pierre emphasized.

We have the national strategy of preparation to respond to potentially dangerous events in 2024 with several logics of intervention while defining priority axes.

We expect to direct part of our efforts to position goods and equipment for responses to weather-related eventualities.

Geographically, from Port-au-Prince, where our central warehouse is located, there are many difficulties in reaching the peripheral levels, including the extreme north and the far south, Pierre said. The manager has attached great importance to improving the dissemination of information, warnings, and communication with the population and the press.
