Heavy rains and winds continue as Tropical Storm Isaac passes over Haiti.
Amid local media reports of flooding, mudslides and power outages, International Rescue Committee teams have been out this morning assessing damage and preparing a distribution of emergency supplies to families affected by the storm.
Hundreds of thousands of Haitians are still homeless nearly three years after a devastating earthquake hit the capital, Port-au-Prince. Many rode out the storm under tarps or in flimsy plywood shelters in makeshift camps around the city.
We'll be posting updates from our colleagues in Haiti at Rescue.org/haiti
