Haiti IRMA: Old Bridge Connecting Ouanaminthe to the Dominican Republic Collapses

Hurricane IRMA went through Ouanaminthe Haiti and took with it an old out of commission bridge that used to connect Ouanaminthe (Haiti) with Dajabon (Dominican Republic).

Note that it is not the official border-crossing bridge between Ouanaminthe and Dajabon that was destroyed by Hurricane Irma. There is a newer bridge that connects the two countries over the Massacre river in Ouanaminthe and that bridge is intact.

Maismy-Mary Fleurant‏ tweets: "It is the old historical bridge between Ouanaminthe and Dajabon that collapsed. It remained an informal crossing point for pedestrians."
