Port-Au-Prince: Haiti`s civil protection chief
says five are dead and another person missing after a storm
struck the country`s southern peninsula.

Civil protection head Marie Alta Jean-Baptiste says the
deaths were caused yesterday in the western areas of the
mountainous southern peninsula by rushing rivers and
mudslides.

More than a dozen houses were struck by a landslide. More
than 300 people were evacuated from flooding rivers.

Radio Kiskeya also reported damage to farms and roads.

The area was not seriously affected by the Jan 12
earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince and southeastern
Haiti.

Haitian officials issued a yellow alert for further
flooding across the country today.
