Haiti Tomas - Haitian Government Ordering Evacuation Of All Camps

In preparation for hurricane Tomas, "Tonight, the government of Haiti is expected to announce an evacuation of all coastal and low-lying areas, as well as an evacuation of all camps, even those within the Port-au-Prince urban area." Evacuation to where???

Haiti Weather Alert

Is this for real?

Pop quiz...

There are 1.3 million Haitians living in tents in Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas since the earthquake.

Do you really think that the Haitian government has emergency shelters for 1.3 million people?

And IF NOT... What kind of evacuation are they talking about here?

It's been 10 months since the earthquake and Tomas is coming to ask questions.

Growing up in Haiti, I used to hear the nickname "Haiti Toma" I have a feeling after this weekend, that nickname will have a bitter taste.

Ahhhhhh.... Pep sa-a gen mize pou-l pase....

What's on your mind?

In Leogane, a river overflowed its banks, and the water is five feet deep in some places.

Evacuate to higher ground is maybe what they should have said.
