Concerned about Haiti PDF Print E-mail

hurricane-hanna-haiti-web.jpgFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) — The director of the National Hurricane Center says the potential for a new catastrophe in Haiti is his biggest concern for the upcoming Atlantic storm season.

Director Bill Read (pronounced REED) could offer little help to Haitians who have been living under flimsy tents since the Jan. 12 earthquake. He warned people to move out of low-lying areas, as Haiti's bare, mountainous landscape leaves the Caribbean country vulnerable to flooding even in strong rainstorms.

The six-month Atlantic hurricane season began on June 1.

alcalloway.jpgMuch argumentation abounds, mainly between academics and politicians -- and to a lesser degree, black activists – about the chicken or the egg conundrum regarding crime and education.

There are those who advocate that crime must be resolved in inner-cities before education can be taken seriously. They readily point to the saturating drug culture that persists, even as more tax dollars for law enforcement and incarceration seem to exacerbate the syndrome.
