Haiti Construction - Why put cement blocks in a concrete roof?

Kreyol - Mwen remake ke bos mason Haiti yo itilize blok 10, le yo ap koule beton sou do kay yo... Poukisa? Mwen pa we sa fet nan lot peyi.

Cement Block Making In Haiti

Menm lakay vwazen an, mwen we se fer ak konkret selman ki nan dal beton an... Epi li pi mins pase beton lakay...

Eske tou de solid, oswa eske gen yonn ki mal fet?

Nan zafe goudougoudou sa-a fok yon moun konnen anba kisa wap domi...

I notice that in Haiti, home builders lay cement blocks(block 10)on the roof tops and pour concrete over it... Why is that? I don't notice this practice elsewhere.

Even next-door, I notice that only rebar and concrete is used in concrete roofs. And they are a bit thinner than at home.

Are they both solid structures or is one more solid than the other?

With earthquakes in Haiti, we have to be careful...

So... Why the cement blocks???
