Demonstrations have been reported in Port-au-Prince on Wednesday, July 3. Protesters have gathered in Bois Patate and on Avenue Christophe, with demonstrators blocking roads, according to American diplomatic authorities. Local sources also report protests and associated road barricades in Canapé Vert. The demonstrations come as severe weather and landslides left several houses damaged in the capital during the overnight hours (local time) of July 2-3.
Transportation and business disruptions are to be expected near the protest sites over the coming hours.
Individuals in Port-au-Prince are advised to monitor developments, avoid the affected area, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
