Haiti, Port-au-Prince Airport, 19 September 2017  Hurricane Irma, a category 5 hurricane, was one of the strongest hurricanes ever seen in the Atlantic. The change of the hurricane trajectory towards the north decreased its potential impact on Haiti and prevented a major catastrophe. However, heavy rains caused flooding, particularly affecting the Northern departments.
