Haiti: Preparing for the Storm

As Haiti continues to prepare for Hurricane Dean's arrival, The Livesay Haiti Weblog reports: “The newest projections are saying ‘Dean’ will hit Southern Haiti sometime Saturday afternoon. It has not strengthened that we see, we're just expecting rain and wind”, while Pwoje Espwa says: “It's a busy time for us as we try and prepare for the worst that Hurricane Dean could bring our way. The next time you hear from me will be after the storm. Keep us in your prayers.”
