Major Landslide in Haiti - Route Nationale No. 3 - Peligre


Over the weekend, tons of mountain dirt fell onto Route Nationale No. 3 near the Peligre hydroelectric dam in plateau centrale Haiti.

There was heavy rain in the area the night before... I was on my way to Port-au-Prince Friday when I suddenly started seeing big rocks in the middle of the road.

Within minutes, I came to a dead stop... Piles of dirt eroded on to the pavement of Route Nationale No.3 just after the Peligre dam

We had to wait for CNE to move the dirt and make room so cars could get by.

I love the road from Hinche to Port-au-Prince and I hope they come up with a plan to prevent erosion of the mountain sides with no trees
