All least 10 people have died and several more went missing over the week end in northern Haiti due to torrential rains according to an official from civil protection, who also confirms that a mother and her three children were among the dead, after their house in Cap Haitian had collapsed.

Heavy rains from the past 48 hours have caused large scale flooding in three northern provinces as well as the southern peninsula, an area still struggling to recover from the devastation of last month Hurricane Matthew.
