is now over 400. sad Most of the areas hit were poverty stricken. Some hard-hitting before and after pics on BBC.

Such tragedy

We can't stop hurricanes, but what makes me so angry about this is that $13 billion was raised for Haiti after the devastating earthquake six years ago and people were still living in flimsy shacks which were totally inadequate to withstand earthquakes or hurricanes.

What has happened to this money?

I started a thread

Not surprised the number has risen.

The rich and the reporters seem to survive just fine. Sigh.
