As Hurricane Sandy makes its way to the eastern seaboard of the United States, it has already left behind a trail of destruction in Haiti, Jamaica and Cuba. Government officials have reported 65 storm-related across the Caribbean with 51 of those in Haiti, which had three days of continuous rainfall that ended only on Friday. Flooding has since ravaged the southwestern areas of the impoverished country and given the extent of the damage, the death toll may rise. Haiti is still suffering from the effects of Tropical Storm Isaac which battered the country in late August, resulting in heavy flooding in the camps where some 400,000 survivors of the 2010 earthquake still live.
