Flooded Tents

Haitians walk through mud after rains from Hurricane Sandy flooded their tent encampment in Port-au-Prince on Oct. 26. Sandy also affected houses that were under repair, said the International Rescue Committee's Haiti Country Director Miriam Castaneda. Overall, according to government estimates, more than 18,000 households were damaged by the storm, she said.
