Civil Protection and local authorities requested food, hygiene and other items to help the victims, while many residents had to seek temporary shelter and risk losing all their belongings.

According to Donald Diogenes, the Mayor of the city, the floods were caused by the lack of cleaning of the canals by the Ministry of Public Works.

Saturday, June 18, Acting Prime Minister Ariel Henry chaired at the National Emergency Operation Center (COUN), a working meeting on flood management in Gonaïves, recalling that the entire Government was mobilized, alongside local authorities, to provide emergency aid to disaster victims in Gonaïves.
