Up to 27 inches of rain are expected in certain parts of Haiti, which 40 (101cm) inches in insolated areas, possibly triggering landslides and chaos in one of the poorest countries in the world which was devastated by an earthquake in 2010.

With winds of 130mph and gusts even higher, structural damage is highly possible also.
