PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — The terminal at the Haitian capital’s international airport has been flooded after a sustained downpour transformed some low-lying Port-au-Prince streets into brown rivers. Videos circulating on social media show passengers up to their ankles in water inside Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Port-au-Prince.
Irving Mehu is director general of Haiti’s airports authority. He says the Port-au-Prince airport’s arrival and departure zones were flooded by the Tuesday downpour.
In a statement, Mehu apologised to travellers for the “disturbing situation.” He indicated that no flights were grounded by the deluge, saying “all services of the airport operate as usual.”
