Tomas tears through Caribbean

Flooding in Leogane, Haiti, 07 Nov 10 (AFP)

Hurricane Tomas hammered the impoverished Caribbean nation of Haiti with heavy rains over the weekend and the town of Leogane – just west of Port-au-Prince – was the hardest hit.

Officials say at least 20 people were killed when Hurricane Tomas hit, triggering flooding and mudslides that also left some 6,000 families homeless on the island.

Cholera is once again a growing concern in Haiti which is still recovering from an earthquake in January.
