WEATHER REPORT
22 dead in Haiti after weekend storms: official
by Staff Writers
Port-Au-Prince (AFP) May 2, 2016


A boat capsized in rough waters during a violent weekend storm, killing 21 people, officials in Haiti said on Monday.

The tragedy occurred overnight Saturday into Sunday according to Eric Prevost, head of Haiti's maritime and navigations service.

The small sailboat departed the city of Bombardopolis and went down shortly before it was to have arrived at its destination in the city of Gonaives.

Officials said rescuers were able to save several passengers, but do not know how many people in total were onboard the vessel.

Authorities blamed rough weather for another death -- a young man swept away by rising waters in central Haiti -- bringing to 22 the total number of people killed during the weekend's inclement weather.
