Con­fu­sion, fear as Haiti camps evac­u­ate for storm

The Covington News - - Local news -

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — For nearly 10 months, more than 1 mil­lion peo­ple in Haiti’s earth­quake camps have been walk­ing a pre­car­i­ous line: Try­ing to get out and find good homes with­out los­ing their tents and the pos­ses­sions they still have.

Now a po­ten­tial hur­ri­cane threat­ens to up­end that care­ful bal­ance. The Haitian govern­ment has called for the vol­un­tary evac­u­a­tion of all the quake zone’s camps ahead of Fri­day’s ex­pected ar­rival of Trop­i­cal Storm To­mas, telling res­i­dents to find some­where else to go.
