2004: Tropical Storm Jeanne reaches hurricane strength near the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic on the island of Hispaniola. While the storm did not strike Haiti directly, it was large enough to cause flooding and mudslides, particularly in the northwestern part of the country. It was blamed for at least 3,006 deaths in Haiti with about 2,800 in the northern city of Gonaïves alone, which was nearly washed away by floods and mudslides.
