PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Sept. 8, 2017
This morning the MAF team in Haiti completed an aerial survey over the northern part of the country, which was hardest hit by Hurricane Irma. Although they observed water in some fields and other places it shouldn’t have been, the team saw little damage.
John Munsell, acting program manager for MAF in Haiti, said, “I have lived and flown in Haiti for 20 years and have completed many survey flights over this area, so I feel that I know this area well. In my opinion, the condition of these areas is what I would expect after a heavy rain. In all of our flying, I didn’t see any trees down, roofs off, or major roads blocked.”
The photos from the aerial survey are being geo-tagged and shared with other NGOs so that they might use them in their own relief efforts.
Please join us in praising God for Haiti’s protection from this storm, and pray for those in Irma’s path as the hurricane moves north. As Hurricane Jose blows into the region, pray that the many islands and people in the Caribbean may be spared further harm.
