Geography

The Department of Plato Santral (Centre) borders the Dominican Republic on the east. It is the only landlocked department of Haiti.

Plato Santral (Centre) is the only department without access to the sea, but it is affected by soil erosion as a result of deforestation. In 2004, the floods caused by Hurricane Jeanne resulted in hundreds of deaths in the Plato Santral (Centre) and Latibonit (Artibonite) departments.

It houses the second largest lake in Haiti, Lake Péligre, which was created as a result of the construction of the Péligre Dam on the Artibonite River during the 1950s. It is the largest hydroelectric dam in the Caribbean. Plato Santral (Centre) is also home to the beautiful Saut-d'Eau waterfall.

The Plato Santral (Centre) department sits atop a high plateau topographical region.
