Isaac Update

Haiti may have escaped the worst of it, although last I heard it was still raining.  Here is some video from earlier today.

Tropical Storm Isaac

We are anxiously watching and waiting as Tropical Storm Isaac makes landfall in Haiti. No matter where you are, there are few of us who will pass a night as anxiously or uncomfortably as those in the tent camps of Port au Prince.  My heart goes out to them.

While I am thankful that it has not yet become a hurricane, I am also acutely aware that oftentimes the rain – causing landslides and flooding – has been as deadlier than the wind. The deadliest incidents in recent years have come via tropical storms not hurricanes.  Even Jeanne was a tropical storm when it hit Gonaives.

On this end there is so little we can do.  Follow the progress of the storm on twitter, and pray.
