Many dead after storm


HAITI is trying to come to terms with the devastation caused by Jeanne, the storm that has left more than 700 dead.

Six hundred of the 691 deaths reported by Wednesday were from Haiti’s third city of Gonaives. More are being recovered, and thousands are homeless after flooding and mudslides hit the city on Sunday, officials told Associated Press.

The Roman Catholic Bishop, Mgr Yves Marie Pean, said people were desperate, and the city was without power. “If we are not careful, several thousand will die of starvation,” he said.
