Haiti: Humanitarian Snapshot (as of June 2012)
The early start of the rainy season in March caused 22 deaths, flooding and landslides, and the loss of crops and livestock in six departments:
Ouest, including Port-au-Prince metropolitan area, Nord, Nord-Ouest, Sud,
Nippes and Grande Anse. Close to 20,000 people, a majority of them living in IDP camps, were affected by flooding. The subsequent contamination of water sources led to a sharp increase in the number of new cholera cases.
