The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) has requested the activation of the International Charter Space and Major Disasters for Haiti, as Hurricane Irma made landfall on the country's northern coast last night. Torrential rain resulted in heavy flooding. Haiti's northern departments have been put on hurricane alert, while the Centre, Ouest and Artibonite departments have been put on tropical-storm alert.
