Thousands of Haitians are returning to the earthquake refugee camps after Hurricane Tomas forced evacuations.

Haiti, which has still not recovered from January's devastating earthquake, may now face another potential disaster.

Officials in Haiti have said that a river that has been a source of a cholera epidemic is expected to overflow.

Thousands have been hospitalized and 500 people have died since October's outbreak.

People living along the river have been alerted to evacuate their families and livestock.
