Flooding in Haiti
Tropical Storm Grace passed over Haiti on 16 and 17 August, bringing heavy rain and wind to a country still in the midst of rescue efforts following the 7.2 magnitude earthquake on 14 August.
The storm caused flash floods and landslides as it moved west past Haiti and onward into the rest of the Caribbean.
The floods caused further disruption to the post-earthquake recovery, forcing some evacuees to be moved again to safer locations. Flooded streets also complicate already difficult supply lines, and the storm damaged tents housing victims unable to seek shelter in over capacity hospitals.
