Hurricane Ike hits Haiti and Cuba

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

This hurricane season, Haiti has faced down four devastating storms in less than a month. Relief agencies are struggling to help thousands of flood victims, and hundreds of Haitians have died. Meanwhile, in South Florida, home to the largest Haitian expat community in the U.S., money and food has started pouring in. The Archdiocese of Miami has put out a call for donations, and churches across the region are busy taking them in.
Guests: Pastor Reginald Jean-Mary, of Notre-Dame d'Haiti Catholic Church, in the "Little Haiti" neighborhood of Miami, and Michael Voss, BBC correspondent, in Havana, Cuba.
