Current #HurricaneMatthew Project
- Author: HOT
- Requesting organization: Red Cross
- Priority: Urgent
Hurricane Matthew a category 4 hurricane is likely to hit the south west part of Haiti in the next 24 hours. The storm is projected to cause "life threatening". "Impacts, such as outer rainbands and some initial tropical storm-force gusts could begin in Jamaica and Hispañola (particularly Haiti) as soon as Sunday night, and in eastern Cuba as soon as Monday. This could make preparations difficult. Over a foot of rainfall from Matthew may trigger life threatening flash floods and mudslides. In Haiti in particular, heavy rainfall could be catastrophic."
This is the first task to map roads and existing villages and towns to enable a detailed risk assessment.

- #hotosm-project-2195 #hurricaneMatthew #haiti When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".
The street network is already mapped for much of this area. However many roads are tagged
highway=road these should be changed to their correct designation, most likely
highway=residential. If you see unmapped roads (big enough for a car to pass) then please trace these and tag appropriately. Most roads will be:
Road Features=Residential Roadin iD
Some buildings are already mapped for much of this area. Please tag all buildings as:
Building Features=Buildingin iD
Please SQUARE (shortcut key = 'S' in iD editor & 'Q' in JOSM) the corners of square/rectangular buildings OR ROUND OFF/CIRCLE (shortcut key = 'O' in iD editor & 'shift-O' in JOSM) any round huts.
Some residential areas are not mapped appropriately. Please be sure to identify/expand residential areas where needed. Use the following tag for residential areas:
Land Use Features=Residential Areain iD
