The “Rainy Season”

After returning from Carrefour with Edward and Brandon, a bad storm hit.   It is the hurricane season.  Haiti has been fortunate to not be hit from a direct hurricane yet, but the wind and rain can also be devastating.  With hundreds of thousands of people displaced from their homes and living in tents, I hope God hears the prayer of Haiti to be spared of hurricanes.  This Saturday we got the worst of the season.  Hit with torrential rains and harsh winds, we got a storm that came on fast and furious. 

Landscaping with a new tent after the storm!

It ripped through Port au Prince taking four lives.  The deaf tent city lost about half their tents.  The large staff tent on the Petionville Country Club Tennis Courts at the JP/HRO tent city was ripped to shreds, a tent able to withstand winds of 80 MPH.

Once again, Aaron my friend at IFRC who is in charge of building the temporary shelters at La Piste came to the rescue.  He brought new tents for those who were damaged in the storm.
