“The whole country of Haiti is under water”

Pray for Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Things have just gotten a lot worse:

Raphael Yves Pierre, director of ActionAid in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, said: “The whole country is under water and Hanna has devastated crops everywhere. A coordinated response for immediate relief is necessary now. But the government and international community also need to get serious about prevention so that damage on this scale does not happen again.” \

Haiti was hit hard by Hurricane Gustav last week, and before the water could drain away, tropical storm Hanna took on hurricane strength and hit Haiti again. This is a bad situation from the viewpoint of rescuing or getting food to people.
