Faced by two hurricanes, Gustav and Hanna, and a tropical storm Fay for at least three weeks, Haiti was the hardest hit country in the Caribbean countries in the American continent. The three tropical storms devastated the country from north to south and east to west. More than 1000 people died and more than 800,000 are hopeless, living without shelters, but that does not make sense. Gonaives has the important death and hopeless number.
September 1st .It was painfully hard and catastrophically unbelievable to see the entire city underwater, where people lost hope and asked if they will be able to restart a new life. “No hope for us” said an inhabitant in Gonaives to a photojournalist reporter. I, as a native of Gonaives, have my mother, my father there. My mother is more vulnerable than my father because she lives in the city. I know that. I called her first, she said to me, ”My son your mother is actually on the rooftop of the house that I don’t know to whom it belongs to.” My heart broke down and the situation that she was facing was the same situation that everybody there was facing. The news had a lot to say about Haiti, particularly Gonaives. The Associated Press (AP), first read said, Gonaives is that they said exactly. ”After four years faces to one of the dead devastated natural disaster, hurricane Hanna.” The Mayor of the city, Mr. Stephen Moise said to AP “The hurricane is worst as it can, I appeal for, immediate help” on the other hand the police chief “ I already saw 10 flooding bodies, it s hard”. No one can say more than that, it is terrible, catastrophic and awful.
