Haiti Storm Update

From The Scotsman:
    While Hurricane Hanna did little damage as it raced past the Bahamas and posed only a moderate threat to the US East Coast, the death toll in Haiti has risen steadily as the floods unleashed by its torrential rains began to recede.

    At least 495 bodies have been found in the mud-heaped port city of Gonaives, where thousands survived by climbing on rooftops, bringing the death toll to 529.

    Ships and planes have begun to arrive with desperately needed aid for Haiti, which has been hit by three deadly storms in less than a month.
Please continue to pray for those affected by these storms.

Hurricane Ike didn't hit Haiti directly, but it is having damaging effects by continuing to hamper relief efforts.
