Quake Victims Told to Flee Hurricane

Haiti is bracing for Hurricane Tomas, which just killed 14 people in Saint Lucia. Winds of 80 miles per hour threaten to destroy the tented homes where 1.3 million people have been living since January, and heavy rains could exacerbate the cholera outbreak that has killed 442 so far. "My sisters and brothers, leave the zones that are at risk, I beg of you," Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive said in a televised address. However, President Preval acknowledges that they don’t “have enough places [on buses] to move everyone.”
