Trip to Port de Paix

I went with Rich yesterday on an ambulance run to take a lady to Port de Paix for surgery. We got her to the river just fine, but they had to cross the river on a little boat, then get another vehicle on the other side. The river is still high, swift, and muddy.
As we neared the river, we saw a lot of damage to banana plantations. Many plants were washed out or broken, and there were a lot of these sand bars. It reminded us of snow drifts back home.
More flood damage. We did not see many damaged homes.
