- Jeremie, Haiti

No significant impact on this region from Beryl, some rain but not enough to relieve the persistent drought conditions. 
Unfortunately, the social/political climate is much more stormy with widespread disruption of the country due to severe civil unrest emanating from Port au Prince. Coupled with the drought and the realistic possibility that Haiti will experience another hurricane in the near future, with increases and chronic shortages in fuel, food and other basic goods the more distant locations, such as Jeremie, are in an even more precarious situation than 6 months ago.

So, the current hurricane season is a major worry for us all.

Jeremie, Grand Anse

Once again, anticipating more storms for this year, weather for which no meaningful preparations have been made. Unquestionably, somewhere in the Caribbean one or more large hurricanes will hit and we genuinely hope it is not in our area, which has not recovered from Matthew in October, 2016.
The past month two months have brought an abnormal amount of rain for our region and this has helped in the recovery of the food-producing plants and landscape.
Things are dry at this time, but things feel less stable, due in part to Alberto hitting the SE US. More to come.
