Haiti braces for possible hurricane as tropical storm closes
Haiti's troubles are not gone yet. According to published reports, the island nation is expecting to be hit by a hurricane. Haiti experienced an earthquake in January, which led to wide-ranging suffering, death and loss throughout that country.
The government has, thus far, issued a red alert for Tropical Storm Tomas. The storm is traveling at 50 mph and could unleash heavy flooding around Haiti. According to Bryant Castro, who works for the American Refugee Committee, tensions are elevated in Haiti and people are very concerned about their belongings.
