The 4 Storms That Sinked Haiti Further In Poverty

By: Fouye - September 14 2008, 6:43 PM

Not long ago there was food riots in Haiti because the Haitian population could not afford the growing food prices in Haiti.

God must be mad at us because mother nature is ripping us to shreds!

Natural disasters begins to strike Haiti with the arrival of tropical storm Fay on August 15, 2008.

Fay was followed swiftly by Hurricane Gustav who made land fall near the town of Jacmel Haiti on August 26.

Just few days after Gustav, on September 2, 2008, tropical storm Hanna, the deadliest tropical cyclone in the Atlantic basin since Hurricane Stan in 2005, lands in Haiti and floods most of the Haitian cities.

Then on September 7, 2008, Hurricane Ike re-flooded Haiti, which was already devastated by Hanna and also hit hard by Fay and Gustav, slowing relief efforts, and killing 74 people most of whom were on the city of Cabaret Haiti.

4 Storms Hit Haiti in less than a month, now a reported 1 million people are homeless.

Just when we thought things would get better, it just got worse.
