Producer's Notebook: Inside Haiti bracing for Tropical Storm Isaac

In an area of Port-au-Prince called "Icar", make-shift tents are all that people have for homes. We drove here expecting there to be serious concern about Isaac, but to our surprise, very few people even knew there was a storm coming this way. This is the most serious weather threat since the earthquake of 2010. Many of those who were displaced from the earthquake that claimed 300 thousand lives are still homeless. The tents are all they have to call home. Those we talked with say they don't plan on leaving behind their belongings to take cover. Others say they simply have no other place to go.

    Why is the people of Haiti still dwelling in cloth like tents? There were many donations and materials given to the causes of the poor.

If the United States could share along with other countries in helping the people regain survival needs by providing necessary supplies and equipments to help them recover. This what makes America and other countries different by being bless and prosperous continually.
